Abstract
The environment within the Department of Defense for acquiring weapon systems has been rapidly changing. Even with the recent terrorist activities, the defense procurement budget has dramatically fallen from its peak, and DoD and the Military Services are demanding more performance for less cost. Gone are the days when new systems could be acquired simply for reasons of greater performance. Now the benefits of performance improvements must be balanced against cost to arrive at a "best value" solution or best investment. Effective decision-making to support "best-value" investments can be enhanced with a distributed collaborative decision support (DCDS) environment. DCDS entails the application of advanced distributed cost estimating, prioritization, modeling and simulation, information science, and engineering tools in an integrated decision framework. This SBIR provides investment decision-making tools and a DCDS environment, which can be used to evaluate the MDA investments plan
