The research found that integration includes the elements of processes, practices, tools, organizational environment, and people with integration competencies. The full framework contains elements that provide a roadmap for the content in this part of the book.

It should be noted that the knowledge foundation for this book is not just restricted to the formal research that has been discussed previously.

In most cases, these examples are based on published studies. In others cases, they are anecdotal, drawn from practitioners' experience, but consistent with other reported evidence of effective integration practices.

Chapter 7 presents a case study of the development of the F/A‐18E/F Super Hornet aircraft, a complex program that was one of the most successful programs in U.S. military acquisition history.
