dc.description.abstractThis research effort was undertaken to analyze the use of Form, Fit, and Function as a second sourcing methodology for major weapon systems. The major objectives of the research were to determine what the main attributes of Form, Fit, and Function were and how it could best be successfully employed. The researcher found that Form, Fit, and Function would most likely not be used for the reprocurement of entire weapon systems. The real potential of this methodology was in the procurement of components and subsystems. In this regard, it can be used successfully for simple or technically complex items, initial or follow-on buys, and as a means of retrofitting existing equipments. Since there is no need to transfer technical data between sources as in the other second sourcing methodologies, Form, Fit, and Function can also be used when the transfer of technology is impossible, impractical or inappropriate.en_US
