Abstract : In this article the author discusses the benefits of standardizing ammunition facilities design and our experience at the US Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS) in an actual ammunition facility design standardization effort. The benefits of standard design include a more efficient and effective design through a coordinated users/designer effort, reduced design costs and time, a higher degree of reliability of design and construction costs, reduced construction costs, reduced site submitted documentation and improved compatibility with equipment/processing systems.
