The Navy's System Performance Effectiveness Program 660723
The primary objective of the Navy's System Performance Effectiveness (SPE) program is to provide tools and techniques necessary for the application of the newly evolved systems effectiveness discipline to the acquisition process for Naval equipment. This discipline attempts to relate design and its associated resource penalties to mission accomplishment while requiring the employment of systems engineering techniques to system development. Extensive Navy efforts in the development of analytic techniques, system design concepts, and system support concepts are briefly described. Areas covered will include microelectronics and packaging uniformity. Brief case histories will illustrate progress to date.
