This thesis focuses on a trial implementation of Knowledge Value Added (KVA) software supporting the management of an Open Architecture (OA) process performance monitoring analysis. During this research Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) business processes establish the baseline Return On Investment (ROI) analysis. Trial implementation of KVA software tools focus on the assessing and monitoring performance of OA. Installation of KVA software tools are used to support ongoing assessment and performance monitoring for Integrated Weapons System (IWS) OA management. This work illustrates the capability to perform ongoing ROI analysis on OA processes for development and acquisition processes enabled through the use of the OA approach. Included in management reports derived from the GaussSoft [sic] Gauss Soft KVA software, a crucial output of this thesis is the ability of the organization to extend the use of the method and toolset over time to meet ongoing needs of Program Executive Office (PEO) - IWS from MDA into other programs/systems. All data gathered was conducted in the UNCLASSIFIED environment for use in this research.
