TWO APPROACHES TO THE PROCUREMENT OF DEVELOPMENTAL HARDWARE

The paper explores two methods used to develop detailed design packages (working drawings) for standard hardware. One method relates to hardware where the end product and its major components are unique to the Navy application for which it is designed. The second method is most compatible with applications where the end product, the major component, or both are not unique and are best developed using product line hardware for major components and tailoring the use of this product line hardware to meet Navy requirements. Having explored the two methods through discussion of an application of each (a cargo drop reel and an hydraulic transmission for winch type applications), the paper goes on to promote the expansion of programs to develop and use standard Navy hardware designed and tested with RDT and E funding, especially hull, mechanical and electrical (HM and E) hardware. /Author/
