Traceability of Funding Lifecycle
Langford, Gary O.
MetadataShow full item record
Traceability of lifecycle funding is premised on a formal approach that mathematically models the use of money to fund tasks, meet schedules, and produce expected results in terms of functionality, performances, and quality. An approach based on principles of systems engineering results in a standardized set of measures of effectiveness. An operative theory for traceability is derived from the general theory of systems integration from which ten propositions. These propositions derive from a set of definitions and axioms. This research affirms there is a proper insight into the concept of effectiveness that rests firmly on an appropriate, repeatable method. Measures of effectiveness are standardized when viewed within the proper formulation of an evaluative framework based on physical objects mapped to processes.
