Summary
Although the Department of Defense (DOD) has boosted its annual weapon system investment from about $80 billion 4 years ago to about $100 billion for fiscal year 2001, its buying power will be weakened if weapons continue to cost more and take longer to develop than planned. DOD wants to improve program outcomes by reducing weapon system development cost and time, while still producing weapons that meet user needs. It has a long way to go; long-standing practices that impede delivery of new weapons within estimates have proven resistant to reform. GAO issued a series of reports on the success leading commercial firms have had in significantly reducing the time and money it takes to develop new and more sophisticated product, the kinds of results that DOD seeks. Leading commercial firms find that integrated product teams-teams that are responsible for all the activities of development, from design to manufacturing-are key to achievement of such results. The practices of leading commercial firms can help DOD maximize the benefits of integrated product teams in its development of weapon systems. In response to a request from the Chairman and the Ranking Member, Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support, Senate Committee on Armed Services, GAO examined (1) whether and how integrated product teams affect decision-making and product outcomes, (2) what factors are key to creating effective integrated product teams, and (3) how the environment in which products are managed affects the prospects for effective integrated product teams
