Contract: F34601-01-C-0253
Award Amount: $99,794.00


The primary goal of this project is to design, develop, and demonstrate an electronic enterprise-wide planning and management system (e-Team). The e-Team system makes the artifacts of the product (or system) development life-cycle available to bothadministrative and technical participants. The key objectives of the e-Team system are to (1) assist domain experts in the real-time coordination, negotiation, and dissemination of program / project goals, and objectives among multiple domain experts atmultiple levels of granularity and (2) to provide visibility into the artifacts of the system development lifecycle for use by the domain experts in critical program decisions. The results of this project will provide an enterprise-wide system evolutionsupport environment to facilitate the management of the system development life-cycle.We propose the use of an electronic enterprise-wide strategic planning and management strategy as an effective means for enhanced communication and coordination for the product or system life cycle. The Phase I results will provide the basis for a morecomprehensive tool that supports all facets of the system life-cycle-the focus of the Phase II effort. The ultimate results of this research will lead to the development of new technology to support enterprise-wide planning and management.E-Teamapplication areas include collaborative planning and control, balanced scorecard, change management, strategic planning and management, knowledge management. Potential user communities include strategic and tactical planners within the DoD, NASA, andindustry.
