Abstract : System X is a series of project management oriented case studies supported by an interactive time-sharing computer program simulating the analysis and evaluation of a hypothetical surface-to-surface guided missile system acquisition program. The computer-assisted exercises operate from baseline data supplied by a data base, along with system parameters set by the user, in order to compute various deterministic statistics regarding system performance and system costs. The system parameter values may be readily changed and the computations repeated. A desired result may be obtained by repeated iterations of the process. (Author)
