Congress directed the construction of 200 units of manufacturedfactory-built housing ar Fort Irwin, CA, in 1982 to see if this method of construction will cost less than conventional housing yet still provide durable housing commensurate with contemporary housing standards. To compare these two types of construction properly, DOD must reliable identify OM costs and user satisfaction. Differences in OM costs must be identified and the reasons for those differences determined. This is the third of four interim reports on the progress of the study. USA-CERL will provide a yearly summary for each of FY84-FY87. A final report covering the first 5 years of OM costs will be written at the end of FY88. No conclusions or inferences should be made as to which type of construction has the lowest OM costs until the final 5-year summary is complete.
