Study Times, a newspaper of the CCP Central Party School, published an article that discussed transforming weapons and equipment to increase power on the battlefield. The transformation model is very important because the correct use of weapons and equipment directly determines their effectiveness in combat. The author believes the direction for changing the model for today’s military is to merge weapons into information systems. A key approach in doing that is to integrate military technology with the civil market to ensure both low cost and sustainability. To speed up the model’s transformation, full system engineering must be introduced into all layers of society, which includes designing top level strategy, establishing operational systems and rules, as well as managing the industrial structure.
