Abstract : A highly significant new management technique for planning, implementing, directing, monitoring, and controlling system programs is discussed. The Integrated Master Programming and Scheduling (IMPS) System is designed as a refinement of the Air Force's Systems Program Management technique with extensive EAM and computer applications. The IMPS System, operating with marked success in the development of a current space project, employs the basic elements of milestone event programming,ALLOCATION AND DELIVERY SCHEDULING, AND MANAGEMENT CONTROLS OF MONEY, MANPOWER AND MATERIEL. It integrates these interdependent elements into a realistic planning pattern based on a common time factor. (Author)
