Abstract:

The Department of Defense DOD and its service branches have placed increasing attention on defense expenditures. The importance of finding new cost reduction methods cannot be over-emphasized. DOD packaging costs are significant. These costs can probably be reduced by the application of proven management techniques. This research effort applies accepted life cycle cost techniques to the area of packaging decisions. The application of these techniques can act as a decision tool for selecting preferred alternatives. Air Force Logistics Command AFLC packaging managers have indicated that a life cycle cost model would be of invaluable assistance to their Air Logistics Center ALC item managers IM as well as Air Force Systems Commands System Program Offices SPO, in the selection of package types.
