Accurate measures for technology adoption and transition are needed to provide objective evaluation systems for DoD acquisition programs. Currently, the DoD uses cost, schedule, and performance to evaluate the success of their programs. Research from this area of study suggests that although cost, schedule, and performance have their benefits, these metrics do not give an entirely accurate representation of success. A multidimensional framework involving additional measures by which to evaluate technologies might give the DoD a more reliable and complete account of their acquisition systems. Better transition metrics could equate to an improved transition rate for the DoD, more efficient resource allocation, and fielding superior systems to the warfighter. Specifically, this study was an assessment of the DARPA AEO and how they should measure success with regards to technology transition and adoption. Through greater comprehension of this topic, the AEO hopes to improve the transition rate for their programs by understanding the factors that they can affect.
