Dual source procurement in the Tomahawk program by J. L Birkler( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, part of a broader study examining the economic implications of establishing a second production source for the Advanced Cruise Missile (ACM), draws on the experience in the Tomahawk cruise missile program to determine (1) whether savings were indeed realized by bringing a second producer into the Tomahawk program, and (2) what conditions are necessary to achieve savings. The authors provide background on the Tomahawk program and its competitive strategies; examine estimates made at different times by different organizations and actual experience to date; and discuss single-source experience, comparing Tomahawk with the air-launched cruise missile, Harpoon, and other missile systems. Bringing a second producer into a program implies incremental non-recurring costs for additional tooling and special test equipment, a technical data package, licensing arrangements, qualification of a second producer, etc. Also, because of the loss of learning-curve benefits, lower production rates for both companies, and smaller quantities over which to spread fixed and semifixed costs, recurring costs may increase when a small production quantity is divided between two companies. It is not self-evident, therefore, that second-sourcing will save money for the government in every major system procurement

Analysis of Air Force aircraft multiyear procurements with implications for the B-2 by Susan J Bodilly( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to a congressional mandate that the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) institute a program management initiative for the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber Program, the OSD asked RAND to provide research and analytic support for a strategy to reduce B-2 procurement costs. This report, part of that effort, examines several past uses of multiyear procurement contracting by the Air Force to develop indicators of program stability useful in determining if a program is an appropriate candidate for multiyear procurement contracting. The report reviews the KC-10, F-16, and B-1B multiyear procurement programs regarding perceived risks, contractual arrangements to reduce or allocate those risks, and estimated cost reductions. The authors compare experiences on these procurements and then demonstrate the indicators on the B-2 program. They find that a multiyear procurement contract might allow for attractive cost reductions; however, program instability makes the B-2 an unlikely candidate for a multiyear approach
The structure of Soviet outlays on R & D in 1960 and 1968 : a report prepared for Director of Defense Research and Engineering by Nancy Nimitz( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether the share of defense/space in total ruble outlays is taken to be three-quarters, as estimated elsewhere, or one-half, as this report estimates, does not alter R and D results but does change implied relative productivities in military and civilian R and D. Differences in sectoral productivity are explained largely by differences in the characteristics of the buyers of new civilian and military capital goods in the USSR. Unlike the civilian customer, the military customer has both market power and an evident preference for technical approaches that save time and restrain costs. The method of estimation links ruble outlays to R and D employment. Total employment and outlays are distributed among 28 branches of the economy (10 nonindustrial and 18 industrial); the contribution of each branch to defense/space is then estimated as a range (defined at the lower end by the percentage share of defense/space in R and D outlays in the analogous U.S. branch in the same year.)
