Abstract : This document explains the origin of the VCNO's tasking of CNA to study sustaining engineering. It describes the analytic and procedural approach to the problem as originally conceived and reports some of the early substantive findings. The most important of these was that the Navy does not know, nor can it currently find out in a comprehensive and systematic way, the specific services it receives as a result of its annual expenditure of approximately $1 billion on sustaining engineering for aircraft and missiles. When these preliminary results were briefed to the VCNO, the original tasking was revised and expanded. The general contents of subsequent documents in this series are also outlined. (Author)
