A Structured Analytic Approach to Investigate Study Issues in pursuit of a Study Objective

A2S has significant experience conducting organized analytic assessments and evaluations in support of policy development, decision-making, management, and administration.

These studies often focus on:

  • Concept, capability, or requirement development (e.g., Capabilities-based Assessments)

  • Acquisition activity (e.g., an Analysis of Alternatives)

  • Resource allocation strategy and programming (e.g., The Department of Defense's Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution [PPBE] process)

A2S can provide a wide variety of study products ranging from short-term simplistic single-variable studies to complex studies requiring an advisory group, a robust team of analysts, and relevant analytic tools (e.g, simulation, mathematical modeling, or experimentation) to underpin study issues, objectives, and results.
