This thesis tracks the extensive evolutionary changes which have occurred in the DOD/Navy Requirements Determination Process during the period from 1970 to 1974. A functional model (which indicates the activities that should occur) in combination with an organizational model (which indicates the participants who should be involved) is used as a prescriptive baseline against which the actual procedures are analyzed and evaluated. Since most of the relevant procedures have been recently revised or replaced, the analysis begins with a review of those in effect prior to 1973 in order to illustrate several problems associated with them. The nature and origin of these problems are subsequently examined in detail. Next, the many changes which have been incorporated into the process are surveyed so that the currently existing procedures can be assessed in relation to the prescriptive baseline. Finally, the conclusions drawn from this evaluation are utilized as the basis for suggestions concerning further refinements to the process.
