Abstract: Most systems now provide multiple functions and multiple capabilities (MFMC) in a single solution. Yet, it has become increasingly challenging for managers to properly assess the development and acquisition of these systems to ensure the achievement of adequate system maturity. Moreover, such a challenge is compounded when the systems are not only comprised of MFMC but have multiple or competing technology and integration alternatives. This challenge then raises a fundamental question: How do we effectively assess the maturity of a system for acquisition when considering technology and integration alternatives or trade-offs in a MFMC system? This paper introduces an approach to begin to address this question and provide results that can be used to evaluate systems development maturity, track progress, and form corresponding strategies for further development and trade-offs in technology and integration alternatives.
