It should be noted that this guide is not intended to serve as a reliability growth plan to be applied to a program without any tailoring. This guide, when used in conjunction with knowledge of the system and its development program, will allow the development of a reliability growth management plan that will aid in developing a final system that meets its requirements and lowers the life cycle cost of the fielded systems.
Application. The guide is intended for use on systems/equipment during their development phase by both producer and customer personnel.
This handbook provides guidance to help in the management of reliability growth through the acquisition process.
