Title Joint Light Tactical Vehicle: A Case Study.
Publication Date Apr 2013
Media Count 32p
Personal Author W. P. Canaley
Abstract The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is the Army and Marine Corps partial fleet replacement solution for the aging High-Mobility, Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). Until recently, JLTV was viewed as a materiel solution that might never come to fruition amidst significant challenges in meeting requirements necessary to advance as a formal program of record. The JLTV materiel solution achieved Program of Record status on 5 January 2012 and is well positioned to meet the next set of requirements in advance of the next phase in program development. This Civilian Research Project examines the JLTV program from requirements development through its current state at the beginning of the Engineering and Manufacturing Development Phase. This paper includes a thorough exploration of requirements generation and program scope. It also includes observations concerning the circumstances and actions taken throughout the process that not only spawned great achievement, but also nearly drove the program to extinction. The ensuing results of the analysis and observations may further identify successes and best practices that may be applied to future programs.
