Proceedings of the Eleventh Annual Acquisition Research Symposium, Thursday Sessions Volume II. Acquisition Research: A Scalable Approach to Modeling Cascading risk in the MDAP Network
MetadataShow full item record
The overarching goal of our multi-year research agenda is to proactively model the non-linear cascading effects of interdependencies in Major Defense Acquisition Program (MDAP) networks. We use this to identify the associated data acquisition challenges so that appropriate governance mechanisms can then be isolated. In this paper, we describe our progress towards a scalable, automated approach for extracting and analyzing the data in the form of Selected Acquisition Reports (SAR) and Defense Acquisition Executive Summaries documents of a network of MDAPs to support a decision-theoretic risk prediction model. Automation is necessitated by the volume and complexity of the data. We will discuss the role of topic modeling, image extraction, and identification of topological features of the MDAP network in this approach.
