Abstract : The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) tasked LMI to perform an independent analysis of the self-checkout systems available in the marketplace and recommend whether DeCA should consider installing them. Based upon our analysis, we believe that existing supermarket self-checkout technology is too expensive and carries too much risk for DeCA at the present time. Therefore, we recommend that DeCA adopt a 'wait-and-see' position on self-checkout systems.
