Case Study 13.2-The Super Conducting Super Collider(Project Management)
First, the public including Congress had little understand- sper of the purpose of the project. Please verify that you are not a robot. The problem was that the pro- and anti- SSC camps tended to split between proponents of pure research and those who argued increasingly swaying political support their way that multibil- lion-dollar research having no immediate discernible impact colllder society was a luxury we could not afford, particularly in an era of federal budget cuts and hard choices.
The Zumwalt class of destroyers was conceived for a unique role.

For example, the ship is not fit- ted with an effective antiship missile system. In place of evidence of definable progress, the project offered only a sense of out-of-control costs and poor oversight—clearly not the message to send when American taxpayers were questioning their decision to foot a multibillion-dollar bill.
Each of the magnets, cylindrical in shape 1 foot in diameter and 57 feet longwould need to operate at peak levels if the accelerator were to achieve the superconducring energy levels for proton collision. Finally, in latethe contract for the SSC was awarded to Waxahachie, Texas, on a 16,acre tract south of Dallas. Take a position and argue its merits.
If these ships need nonstealth vessels around them for protection against incoming threats, what is the point of creating a stealth ship in the first place? Will the missions the latter ships are capable of performing even resemble the role designed for them today?
Another huge problem was finding a suitable loca- tion for the site of the SSC. Considering that the mission of the Zumwalt is close-in support and shore bombard- ment, the inability to effectively defend itself against antiship missiles is a critical flaw.

Questions at the end of case study: By then, however, it was a case of too little, too late. Could these signs have been recognized so that problems could have been foreseen and addressed or, in your opinion, was the project simply impossible superconduccting achieve? Why, in your opinion, is there such a long his- tory of defense projects overshooting their bud- gets or failing some critical performance metrics?
