Abstract: This paper continues a research agenda started in 2016 with an aim of more realistic acquisition program scheduling estimates, especially for the development (SSD) phase. This, our third look at the scheduling problem, starts with a discussion of scheduling data, and how that data could be applied to help the DoD address this challenge. This section includes ideas on how to use acquisition data for the scheduling problem. Next, we present a case study of the result of field interviews with senior DoD leaders. Finally, we present a discussion on using the system performance as a metric.
