Abstract : This report provides guidance for Concept Formulation Studies supplementary to that contained in official Department of Defense and Service Documents. It is primarily concerned with management problems and procedures associated with studies involving large amounts of information and participation by different technical specialists, and which must derive clear resource allocation decision guidance. This report was based on both the author's experience as a Concept Formulation study manager and his retrospective analysis of the problems and responsibilities of a Concept Formulation study manager.
