Using the systems engineering process to balance the interdependence of mission capability, operations and support costs and system utility rates: What's T&E's role
MetadataShow full item record
The following article is taken as an excerpt from the proceedings of the annual Acquisition Research Program. This annual event showcases the research projects funded through the Acquisition Research Program at the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy at the Naval Postgraduate School. Featuring keynote speakers, plenary panels, multiple panel sessions, a student research poster show and social events, the Annual Acquisition Research Symposium offers a candid environment where high-ranking Department of Defense (DoD) officials, industry officials, accomplished faculty and military students are encouraged to collaborate on finding applicable solutions to the challenges facing acquisition policies and processes within the DoD today. By jointly and publicly questioning the norms of industry and academia, the resulting research benefits from myriad perspectives and collaborations which can identify better solutions and practices in acquisition, contract, financial, logistics and program management.

By analyzing the sub-elements of both operational effectiveness and operational suitability it can be shown how operational effectiveness is a dependent element of operation suitability. Additionally, it will be demonstrated how support costs influence operational suitability parameters of a weapon system, which then impacts a combat unit's overall mission effectiveness. Since support costs have such a critical relationship with operational suitability factors, the project also defines the current relationships between Service Cost and T&E communities to question whether or not there is the requisite level of integration of effort between the two organizations to accurately assess weapon system costs and capability prior to production.
