This Note describes and suggests improvements to the requirement methodologies for ground-fired conventional ammunition developed for the U.S. Marine Corps. The analysis deals primarily with the shooter-oriented level-of-effort (SOLOE) and the target-oriented level-of-effort (TOLOE) methods. The findings suggest that the current requirements process could be improved in several ways that can be grouped under three categories--methodology, assumptions, and the treatment of uncertainty.
