Abstract
This thesis analyzes the feasibility of using Cost/Schedule Control Systems Criteria (C/SCSC) concepts at U.S. Army Depots. C/SCSC compliance is commonly used by the defense industry when contracting with the U.S. Government for large production and R&D (research & development ) programs. However, program managers of acquisition programs that opt to have significant work efforts performed at Army depots may also need methods of tracking cost and schedule performance. One method may be the implementation of C/SCSC management techniques at these depots. This thesis analyzes current Army depot methods for controlling and reporting cost/schedule performance. The viability and benefits of using the techniques of C/SCSC are compared to the depot methods. This thesis concludes with recommendations on what aspects of C/scsc should be incorporated by U.S. Army depots and guidelines to follow for implementation. The methodology utilized for this thesis can also be applied to other DoD field activities for C/SCSC concept exploration.
