Pagination or Media Count:
The introduction of DOD Directive 5000.1, AR 1000-1 and the new material acquisition guidelines has been followed by numerous directives, policy statements, and similar papers that philosophically address the issue of Design to Unit Production Cost DTUPC. The guidance on DTUPC has been evolutionary in character, and therefore, the report represents a synopsis of the more salient points of DTUPC implementation. As such it describes the DTUPC, explores the criteria of when it should be applied, suggests methods for development of the DTUPC, and provides guidance for the establishment of tracking procedures. The report is of an abstract nature, to be used as a ready reference. It is not meant to be definitive to the point of addressing the DTUPC, as would be the case in a handbook or procedural document. As the DTUPC philosophy continues to evolve and experience is gained, more detailed procedural documents will be published.
