Abstract:

This analysis develops a rationale for the reliability and durability requirements for the XM204, 105MM Towed, Howitzer while simultaneously defining a plan to test for those requirements. The system reliability requirement, subsystem durability requirements, reliability and durability uncertainties of the proposed design, and the number of prototypes and test lengths to establish reliability and durability parameters, are related to expected costs. Certain of these factors are identified as variables. This lends to consideration and evaluation of alternative courses of action with the objective of reducing expected life cycle costs. The expected loss life cycle cost for this analysis of an alternative in accordance with standard statistical terminology.
