A model of a representative defense contractor is formulated. The model is formulated in segments which correspond to the markets in which the defense contractor operates. The supply of input segment describes the input variables in the model. The manufacturing segment characterizes the defense contractors inventory and production process. The demand for output segment describes the output and contractual relationships of the buyer and the seller. The financial segment relates the balance sheet and the income statement to the structure of the firm. A discussion of decision rules for the behavior of the defense contractor operating at equilibrium is conducted
