Description

Defense acquisition projects cost billions of taxpayer dollars each year. These huge investments, coupled with seemingly perennial criticisms of waste and mismanagement, point out the need for a clearly written guide to the myriad functions and issues involved in defense acquisition management. Written for both students and practitioners, Management of Defense Acquisition Projects, Second Edition enables the reader to understand the broad range of disciplines and activities that must be integrated in order to achieve successful acquisition outcomes. Written by academics and practitioners, the second edition features significant updates throughout, and totally new chapters on:

Systems engineering
Software Acquisition Management
Earned Value Management
Category Management and Strategic Sourcing
Organizing for Defense Acquisition Project Management

Management of Defense Acquisition Projects, Second Edition provides a basic overview of each functional area that supports defense acquisition projects as well as its application to those projects. These functional areas include, systems engineering, financial management, contract management, test and evaluation management, production management, logistics and sustainment. It also highlights significant issues such as organizational considerations, the defense industrial base, and acquisition workforce issues. Written in a manner that will withstand the many DOD policy changes that are often associated with defense acquisition programs, it features learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter and study questions at the end of each chapter.
