This Joint Applied Project analyzes the current and near propositions for automated tracking systems to modernize acquisition planning. The text provides recommendations on a standardized, seamless, end-to-end (E2E), shared process and data environment across a multitude of enterprises and communities of interest. Research enhances available modules and decision aid tools to facilitate knowledge discovery and management for stakeholders in requirements generation, acquisition management and resource planning. The main goal is to educate stakeholders on resources available on a shared virtual working environment and to facilitate a common picture of individual platform mission capabilities and identified shortfalls. This knowledge enables decision makers to select the most capable platform to fill mission need and identifies capability gaps that steer planning and execution. The data collection involves examining recent articles, automated system user guides, command metrics, and research data on new and existing automated tracking tools. Some of the text is inherently technical, discussing navigational tools and corresponding acquisition planning to the utility of each system. The text provides recommendations on automated workflow tracking implementation along with a basic checklist for the reader to use to ascertain what functionalities are best suited for tailored specific command mission.
