Abstract : An approach is made to develop a planning concept for establishing the proper compromise between propulsion-system flow stability and performance. Testing is considered to be a tool for predicting flow compatibility and lead-time funding requirements. The types of compromise studies to be accomplished prior to the Contract Definition Phase are stressed. The use of this planning tool will organize the results of the compromise studies to permit the selection of an airframe-engine combination at the system acquisition phase; statistically, this selection will represent the most compatible system.
