The purpose o£ this paper is to study the criteria used in establishing designated project management in the United States Navy, then to compare that criteria to organizational theory and industrial practice. It is hoped that this discussion will improve insight into this form of organization, currently being utilized to a greater and greater extent, and that more meaningful and useful criteria for the establishment of project management can be recommended. This paper will attempt to clarify and identify project management and its objectives, present a brief history of this type of organization, examine the requirements which originally led to selecting designated projects, and discuss the planning and dec is ion-making process that precedes the establishment of such a project. It will also discuss the costs and the benefits of project management and demonstrate why sound criteria for establishing designated projects are needed. The specific research question addressed is, what criteria should be utilized in the selection of weapon or support systems to be designated for project management.
