Abstract : The Directorate of Engineering Standardization, Defense Electronics Supply Center, had no basis for comparing results obtained from conducting a standardization project involving established reliability (ER) parts with one involving non-ER parts. The study was concerned with determining how a mathematical model could be developed to assist in the selection of the most beneficial method of standardization. A simulation technique coupled with the concepts of decision theory was offered as an appropriate modeling technique. The study concluded that such a technique filled a void in the standardization process by providing a systematic methodology for examining standardication alternatives. (Author)
