Success with Standardization
The following case studies are examples of the ingenuity and effort that the defense standardization community put in to develop and use common specifications and standards to provide support to the warfighter.

  • Permeation Testing for Low-Volatility Substances
    The LVAP test method and fixture enable such testing for contact hazards, and this is now endorsed as a DoD Test and Evaluation standard.

  • NAVSEA Test Equipment Standardization
    This study describes how the standardization efforts of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Test, Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) program have dramatically reduced the variety of test equipment, while driving down procurement, logistics support, maintenance, and calibration costs through modernization.

  • Joint Committee on Tactical Shelters (JOCOTAS)
    This study describes the efforts of the Joint Committee on Tactical Shelters (JOCOTAS) to standardize tactical shelters across all four armed services and how those actions have reduced the types of shelters the Department of Defense (DoD) uses.
