This policy is the result of the Reliability Senior Steering Group chartered by Dr. Ashton Carter, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics last year to make recommendations to strengthen system reliability policy. This DTM places early and continuous emphasis on reliability growth management that is fully integrated across systems engineering, life cycle sustainment, and test and evaluation activities. Andy Monje, the OSD Reliability and Maintainability Engineering lead is available to help programs implement this new policy.
