This paper discusses operational experience with the integrated Saturn V launch vehicle, to be used as the booster for the Apollo manned lunar landing mission. Emphasis is placed on NASA's management approach to the solution of technical problems rather than on the problems themselves. Launches to date are summarized, with emphasis on the Saturn V. A discussion flight anomalies and corrective management action is included. The paper concludes with an appraisal of the program to date and makes recommendations for future guidance.
