Abstract : The translation of Air Force, fixed, ground Communications- Electronics-Meteorological (CEM) equipment and systems requirements into operational facilities requires lead times of from three to five years under existing CEM programming procedures. This study identified and analyzed deficiencies in the CEM programming process and proposed a method for streamlining the procedures. A computer simulation of a PERT network was performed using GASP 2B simulation language to determine the reduction in lead times. A major conclusion was that there is no clear distinction between the CEM planning and programming functions. The lack of an active planning function is considered the root of most of the deficiencies in CEM programming. (Author)
