Sudarsan Rachuri, Sebti Foufou, Sharon J. Kemmerer


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted an investigative study in collaboration with Army Materiel Command personnel to assess the level of current pilot or production use of various military, national, or international standards during the lifecycle support of any given weapon system component or part. This report identifies standards that could be used for lifecycle product data standardization, interoperability, and exchange among Army and their original equipment manufacturers? enterprise systems; and helps build a business case for using standards.
