An application of technological maturity assessment to ROKAF T-50 aircraft production program
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates the feasibility of applying a knowledge-based approach to the problem of estimating the future success of a major defense acquisition. This thesis will model the US Government Accountability Office (US GAO) knowledge based methodology for evaluating programs. This methodology relies on three sets of knowledge, namely, technology, design, and production. In particular, the technology dimension is measured by Technology Readiness Level (TRL), as defined by NASA. In addition, the methodology relies on assessing the design readiness of a program by examining the status of the release of engineering drawings. Finally, the US GAO methodology assesses the production readiness of a program by examining the status of Statistical Process Quality Control (SPQC) procedures. This thesis also presents to the ROKAF decision maker an independent, knowledge-based estimation of the ROKAF T-50 program by applying the US GAO methodology to the T-50 program.
