There is a continuous discussion between the user and the designer as to what the optimal reliability and durability requirements for a weapon system such as a howitzer should be. This analysis develops a rationale for the reliability and durability requirements for the XM204, 105mm Towed, Howitzer while simultaneously defining a plan to test for these requirements. The system reliability requirements, subsystem durability requirements, reliability and durability uncertainties of the proposed design, and the number of prototypes and test length to establish reliability and durability parameters, are related to expected cost.
