Description
Government Accountability Integrity Reliability Office Collection

Excerpt
Excerpt: GAO assessed 51 defense programs ranging from the Missile Defense Agency?s Airborne Laser to the Army?s Warfighter Information Network. GAO?s assessments are anchored in a knowledge-based approach to product development that reflects best practices of successful programs. This approach centers on attaining high levels of knowledge in three elements of a new product or weapon-technology, design, and production. If a program is not attaining this level of knowledge, it incurs increased risk of technical problems, with potential cost and schedule growth (see figure). If a program is falling short in one element, like technology maturity, it is harder to attain knowledge in succeeding elements.
