The Army project manager for the Crusader artillery system set a goal of using state-of-the art manufacturing for the system’s production. To assist in meeting these goals, the Army asked the National Research Council to provide expert advice on the strategy, technology, and business plans for system development. While the Crusader project was cancelled, Congress has directed the Army to consider alternative systems. This report presents an analysis of and recommendations on several issues concerning the manufacturing process that was to be used by the contractor for the Crusader project. Some of these issues should be of relevance to potential replacement artillery systems should the Army proceed with any.
