Abstract

The force support system can be defined as various elements such as equipment, parts, facilities, and software except for the weapon system, and it occupies most of the military products based on the number of items. The armed forces have developed military technology in the field of force support systems or has introduced commercial products and technologies from the private sector.
The purpose of this study is to establish the operational concept of information system to support the project management of force support system from the perspective of total life cycle. The results of this study can be summarized into three major points. First, there are complex constraints in the R&D(Research and Development) project of force support system, and transparency and efficiency during project management are also required. Therefore, it is necessary to build an information system that supports the force support system in a effective way. Second, it is necessary to reengineer the business process before building the information system related to the force support system. Third, it is necessary to form consensus within the military to improve the efficiency through the improvement of business process and information system.
It is expected that the policy alternatives to the project management informatization proposed in this study will contribute to improve the efficiency and transparency of the project management.
