Argument Mapping as a Tool for Analysis of Complex Problems within Fleet Acquisition and Through-Life Support

Vodica, R., Goodwin, A., van Gelder, T., Diab, H., Perry, J., Stimson, M., & Holmes, D. (2013). Argument Mapping as a Tool for Analysis of Complex Problems within Fleet Acquisition and Through-Life Support. Paper presented at the 15th Australian International Aerospace Congress (AIAC15), Melbourne.

Abstract
Over the past decade the Defence Science and Technology Organisation have conducted numerous investigations into the acquisition and sustainment of military fleets. The studies have included research on the capability, operations, infrastructure, through-life support and cost of ownership of sea, air and land fleets. A significant issue identified was how to best deploy relevant organisational knowledge and factual evidence in analysing these complex and ill-structured problems in Defence. In this paper an argument mapping process was used to consider how long the Australian Defence Force should sustain its aircraft fleets by examining two different life-cycles; long and short.
