Abstract:

An economic analysis was performed to evaluate potential cost benefits of standardizing the U.S. Army Communications Command Preferred Items List PIL for Test Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment TMDE. The study encompassed three types of PIL TMDE and the more than 50 non-PIL TMDE these can potentially replace. Results of the analysis clearly indicate that for all three types of PIL TMDE, standardization would produce significant cost savings for USACC. The potential savings would amount to more than 4 million if the three PIL items are standardized and phased-in to replace the non-PIL items currently in the USACC inventory. Author
