DoD has charted a new course to improve the way in which it provides weapon systems for its forces -- the use of Integrated Process and Product Develop. concepts and the use of empowered, multifuncitonal teams, called Integrated Product Teams. The earliest DoD program under these concepts is the Air Force F-22 Advanced Tactical Fighter develop. program.

Provides explanations of how the F-22 program operates and shows practical examples of how the theoretical concepts can be applied in the real world. Illus.
