Abstract:

Technical Performance Measurement TPM began emerging as a system requirement in 1967. It was introduced formally by MIL-STD-499 AFSC dated July 17, 1969. Since that time TPM has proven to be a useful tool of systems engineering management in the Air Force and in NAVORD. It is considered desirable, therefore, to provide guidance applicable to performance measurement factors pertinent to ship acquisitions, and, also, criteria for using TPM outputs and conducting trade-offs necessary to develop practical and effective ship design solutions. This report describes the general nature of trade-offs which can be made during each phase of a ship acquisition project, explains the techniques of TPM, and provides guidelines for using the outputs on TPM in trade-off studies.
