This report contains the results of a study of alternative approaches to standardized packaging of Navy electronic systems. Existing Navy standards are described and principal advantages and disadvantages of each type discussed. Comments of industry personnel concerning present standards in NAVMAT P3940, Navy Systems Design Guidelines Manual, Electronic Packaging, are presented together with potential procedures for implementing further standardization. Preliminary information is given for several industrial packaging systems under development by contractors. Examples of life cycle cost considerations are given for two typical systems, one a mechanical standard and the other a functional standard. These examples illustrate the difficulty in estimating the dollar costs for a particular type of standardization. Evaluation criteria are presented to assist a project managerengineer in determining the applicability of the NAVMAT P3940 standards to a specific system or program. Guidance for the implementation of standards in a given system or program including contractural provisions are included. The last section contains recommendations and conclusions.
