dc.description.abstractThis thesis analyzes how the United States Army and Marine Corps comply with Department of Defense Directive 5000.2, Defense Acquisition Management Policies and Procedures,' which mandates the effective integration of human considerations into the acquisition process. Despite a common purpose, the Army and Marine Corps human systems integration (HSI) programs have evolved distinctive policies, procedures, and methodologies, tailored to the Services' unique operational and organizational environments. To evaluate program effectiveness, this thesis performs a comparative analysis of the HSI procedures employed by each Service in the acquisition of major and non- major ground combat weapon systems. Specifically, the thesis constructs an HSI Attributes Matrix, contrasting the Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV) with the Armored Gun System (AGS), and the Short Range Anti-tank Weapon (SRAW/Predator) with the Advanced Anti-tank Weapon System- Medium (AAWS-M/Javelin). Extrapolating generalizations from case analyses, this thesis identifies the policies, procedures, and methodologies which are most effectual in integrating human considerations into system acquisition. Finally, the thesis recommends modifications to the Marine Corps' HSI program to improve the acquisition process and thereby, better satisfy the operational requirements of the Fleet Marine Force.en_US
