Abstract : The Army has learned that competition is desirable in general for the production of its weapons, but that it must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis before it is applied. This guidance is intended to give the analytical staff of a typical project manager a framework for the analysis of production competition. The objective of this study is therefore to develop this guidance to allow the rigorous comparison of competitive and non-competitive alternatives and evaluate the relative benefits and risks of these alternatives. The product is to consist of an instructional guide with a program to be used by decision-makers onsite. The result of the study effort was the preparation of a proposed pamphlet designed to guide the project manager in his analysis of competitive issues.
