Progeny Systems proposes to create a Bayesian Decision Network (BDN) based simulation that relates program and technical variables and makes projections as to the Total Ownership Cost of a system. This proposal discusses an incremental approach to the creation of a simulation environment that would enable the sponsor to clearly see the impacts of various technological and organizational decisions. Through accurate modeling and optimizing technology insertion, Progeny Systems can facilitate and enable the Navy with the ability to apply mature and cutting edge technologies that optimize the technical composition of the system.
