9) Affordability is most concerned with: [Relate the concepts of Affordability and Should Cost to the planning of an acquisition program.]Making tradeoffs in performance and schedule to achieve cost objectiveswithin affordability constraints.Making tradeoffs that will provide the best possible system in the least amount of time.Use of commercial design practices to save development and production costs.Use of state-of-the-art design and materials to accomplish the mission documented in the Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) and Capability Development Document (CDD).
10) When comparing two alternative concepts, you discover that both will provide the needed capabilities. Alternative 1 requires new development that will take 7 years and will cost more than the other alternative. Alternative 2 can be developed in 4 years relying on proven Joint Capabilities Technology Demonstration (JCTD) technology. Based on the information provided here, which is the better alternative? [Given a draft Capability Development Document (CDD) and a summary Analysis of Alternatives (AoA), select an appropriate concept, from the perspective of the system developer, to meet the user's requirements.]
