This research project will examine the DoD Software Acquisition process utilizing Jay Forrester's System Dynamics methodology. Well known acquisition issues and policies will be examined with specific focus on oversight, process integration, process discipline, and knowledge management. These issues will be examined for causality and dependent relationships. Additionally, a proof of concept systems dynamics model will be developed to simulate the system and test possible interventions for organizational structure and policy.
