An LSI contractor could be much more responsive to the manpower needs of the FCS program by using human resources methods common to the private sector.
One of the biggest obstacles to successfully meeting the aggressive timelines established by General Shinseki was pulling together enough manpower with enough capability to perform the thousands of systems engineering and integration tasks necessary to develop the complex SoS that was to make up the FCS program.
As described earlier, the initial configuration of the FCS had nearly 20 major subsystems, each of which would warrant a major acquisition program if they were procured separately.
Our discussions with officials involved in the FCS program found that these two areas accounted for the vast majority of problems experienced on the FCS program to date.
After compiling the data, it is clear that organizational culture has been the biggest impediment to success of the LSI concept on the FCS program.
When the Army first announced its intention to implement the LSI concept on the FCS program, there was a lot of internal opposition to the idea within the Army.
The 18 platforms that make up the FCS family of systems are the work of some 23 prime and more than 345 other contractors, a communal effort that Cartwright called the basis of the program's continuing success.
One of those team members, Boeing Company FCS Program Manager Dennis Muilenburg, noted in remarks to reporters that "the major proof of that teamwork is that we are 27 months into a complex systems-development demonstration phase, and we are right on cost, right on schedule, and meeting all the performance requirements."
Staying on schedule is important, Cartwright noted, since the Army intends to field each of the FCS constituent systems as it becomes ready.
"To be complete, that organizational design is waiting for the FCS systems and technologies to be delivered to the warfighters.
Harvey said the insertion of selected FCS technologies into the current force, coupled with the ongoing development and fielding of FCS's range of constituent systems, will allow the Army to confront and defeat a learning, adaptive enemy across the entire range of military operations.
"Our modular formations, continuously enhanced by the insertion of FCS technologies, will ensure our soldiers and leaders have the capabilities they need to win decisively when and where the nation calls," he said.
