Abstract: This proposed research has the explicit goal of proposing a reusable, extensible, adaptable, and comprehensive advanced analytical modeling process to help the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) with risk-based capital budgeting and optimizing acquisitions and programs portfolios with multiple competing stakeholders while subject to budgetary, risk, schedule, and strategic constraints. The research covers topics of traditional capital budgeting methodologies used in industry, including the market, cost, and income approaches, and explains how some of these traditional methods can be applied in the DOD by using DOD-centric non-economic, logistic, readiness, capabilities, and requirements variables. Portfolio optimization for the purposes of selecting the best combination of programs and capabilities is also addressed, as are other alternative methods such as average ranking, risk metrics, lexicographic methods, PROMETHEE, ELECTRE, and others. Finally, an illustration at PEO-IWS and NAVSEA is presented to showcase how the methodologies can be applied to develop a comprehensive and analytically robust case study that is ready for senior leadership at the DOD to make the optimal decisions.
