Abstract : Brief summaries of United States and other world-wide commercial and government reliability, ninintainability, availability, and dependability (R/M/A/D) standards are included. Defense Acquisition Reform will result in an increased reliance on other than US military standardization documents. This Primer is useful to reliability and maintainability (R&M) practitioners to help determine what standardization documents (other than US military) are available. Standardization documents were reviewed and from many organizations including the: American National Standards Institute (ANSI), British Ministry of Defense (MOD), British Standards Institute (BSI) , Canadian Standards Association (CSA), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES), Electronic Industries Association (EIA), Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits (IPC), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), North Aflantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Eighty-eight summaries were written for those R/M/A/D documents that were found to be system or subsystem oriented, available in English, and not industry or technology specific. The document descriptions include ordering and pricing information. Appendix C contains a listing of hundreds of other R/M/A/D standards. Appendix D is a listing of R/M/A/D standards specific to the telecommunications industry.
