4. GENERAL PROGRAM GUIDELINES.
4.1 Program Managers.
4.1.1 Roles of the program manager.
In the context of this standard, the program manager's primary role is to ensure environmental engineering considerations are addressed systematically, thoroughly, and effectively at appropriate times throughout the materiel acquisition process. The process for accomplishing this integration is diagrammed on figure 1-1. An associated role is to ensure environmental effects information is documented, available, and communicated from one program phase to another.
4.1.2 Guidance for program managers.
a. DoD 5000-series documents call for a systems engineering process that considers all life cycle needs, including storage, transport, and operation in natural environments, considering for example climatic, terrain, and oceanographic factors (DoDD 5000.2-R, paragraph 4.3). The environmental tailoring process shown on figure 4-1 occurs throughout the materiel acquisition cycle, helping to ensure system design and test criteria are tailored to environmental conditions within which materiel is to operate.

a. This standard contains materiel acquisition program planning and engineering direction for considering the influences that environmental stresses have on materiel throughout all phases of its service life. It is important to note that this document does not impose design or test specifications. Rather, it describes the environmental tailoring process that results in realistic materiel designs and test methods based on materiel system performance requirements. Figure 1-1 summarizes this direction.
