Although reliability, availability and maintainability RAM and system support policies for Army equipment in general are fairly well defined in such documents as AR 700-127 and AR 702-3 or various MIL STDs, there is little that recognizes unique RAM and support considerations that apply to training systems. The Authors identify some of these considerations, which, though largely unique to training systems. They then discuss the impact of these considerations, with emphasis on how RAM specification and growth and support management differ from that of the combat systems around whose needs AR 702-3 and the MIL STDs are principally modelled. The authors develop specific conclusions as to policy and practice distinctions from the combat systems model that should be made in training systems development programs.
