Software development in weapon systems is extremely challenging and has become a significant source of problems in DOD programs. The purpose of this thesis is to identify and document . strategies and techniques for program offices to use in managing these software problems. This thesis documents the success of the Enhanced Position Location Reporting System in applying correct,ive software management actions to specific problems encountered. Lessons learned have been drawn from the analysis and generalized for application to other DOD programs. The principal finding is that an effective software corrective action plan requires a focused effort devoted to identifying and correcting all software deficiencies. This is accomplished before further developmental work requiring software is attempted. The thesis concludes that an astute program office should be prepared to implement and manage this type of software corrective action plan. Two primary recommendations are for the development of a DOD policy on the management of software corrective action and the development of a DOD model for software corrective action by program offices.
