1.1 Purpose
The purpose of this standard is to specify the requirements for conducting an effective parts control program in the acquisition of an NDI system form time of contract award and continuing througgh the operational (fielding) phase of the system.

1.2 Objectives
The objectives for applying the parts control engineering review provisions of this standard in an NDI acquisition contract are:
a. To conserve resources and reduce life-cycle costs by minimizing the introduction of new replacement items into the military supply system
b. To maximize the use of established standard parts and items available in the military supply system.
c. To apply engineering principles and standardization techniques to identify and select standard parts as alternative to proposed (new) repair parts without adversely affecting the performance of the NDI system.
