Military system acquisition management decisions can be both untimely and uninformed, according to the author, due to the adverse effects of communication breakdown and filtering of information. An acquisition group decision support system (AGDSS), defined in this thesis, seeks to maintain acquisition team integrity and provides the necessary information processing capacity to mitigate the impact of these effects. The combination of such key technologies as local area networks, word processing, graphics, data base management, and video conferencing, is employed, which can free acquisition team members of mundane paperwork and afford them extraordinary decision making capabilities. These capabilities promise to result in more timely and better informed decisions. An example is provided to illustrate the application of an AGDSS to an acquisition-related problem and to show the benefits that can be derived from the output of the AGDSS. Finally, a system-level specification describing the performance and interface requirements is presented.
