The goal of the standard is to encourage the use of best manufacturing management practices aimed at promoting the timely development, production, modification, fielding, and sustainment of affordable products:
•The standard is primarily intended for use in the defense
industry, but may be applicable to other commercial industries

•The standard is intended for use as a contractual requirement, to
be included in Requests for Proposals and Statements of Work

•The requirements of the standard are readily tailorable to each
program’s unique situation
