Maintenance and repair M and R cost estimates are needed during planning, design, and operationsmaintenance of Army facilities. During planning, life cycle costs are needed to evaluate alternative ways of meeting requirements e.g., lease, new construction, renovate existing facilities. During design, M and R requirements for various types of components, such as built-up or shingle roofs, are needed so that the total life cycle cost of different designs can be minimized. Finally, once the facility has been constructed, outyear predictions of maintenance and repair costs are needed so that enough funds can be programmed to ensure that Army facilities are maintained properly and do not deteriorate due to lack of maintenance.
