Risk, uncertainty and open architecture in the DoD acquisition system
Cole, Scott F.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis analyzes the impact of risk and uncertainty on the Defense (DoD) Acquisitions System and the decision making process of modern Program Managers. A number of risks and uncertainties will be identified and a determination will be made if Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Open Architecture (OA) decreases or increases risks and uncertainty. In addition, it explores whether SOA and OA has achieved projected significant cost savings.

Beattie, Jodi C. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2003-03);As mesoscale models increase in resolution there is a greater need to understand predictability on smaller scales. The predictability of a model is related to forecast skill. It is possible that the uncertainty of one scale ...
