520    Large, complex submarine design and construction programs 
       demand personnel with unique skills and capabilities 
       supplemented with practical experiences in their areas of 
       expertise. Recognizing the importance of past experiences 
       for successful program management, the Australian 
       government asked the RAND Corporation to develop a set of 
       lessons learned from its Collins submarine program that 
       could help inform future program managers. Collins was the
       first submarine built in Australia. RAND investigated how 
       operational requirements were set for the Collins class; 
       explored the acquisition, contracting, design, and build 
       processes that the program employed; and assessed the 
       plans and activities surrounding integrated logistics 
       support for the class. Although Australia had intended to 
       take an evolutionary approach in procuring the Collins 
       class by using an existing design, no design was suitable,
       so the program pursued a developmental platform and a 
       developmental combat system. This introduced a high degree
       of risk into the program, particularly in the combat 
       system technology. Among the important lessons: All 
       appropriate organizations should be involved in a new 
       submarine program from its inception, the majority of the 
       design drawings should be completed before construction 
       begins, and a thorough and adequate testing program should
       be developed. Because designing and building a submarine 
       is one of the most complex undertakings for a new program,
       they require careful management and oversight.
