Phase (g) (1)--"Provide logistics requirements, workload estimates, and logistics risk assessment."
The purpose of the TMRR phase is to reduce technology, engineering, integration, and life-cycle cost risk to the point that a decision to contract for Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) can be made with confidence in successful program execution for development, production, and sustainment (DoD, 2015).
This set of AoA activities, confirmed by CAPE, helped to bound the AoA scope and set the stage for identifying the additional technical activities required to prepare for Milestone A and the TMRR phase.
"We're going to be keeping contractors online for TMRR
or a little bit longer," he said at a recent nuclear triad conference.
Within either a TMRR or EMD phase, we should structure workflow to reduce or realize as early as possible the likelier and more consequential risks.
For all our major commitments, but particularly for exiting TMRR and for entering production, I demand specific accomplishments as criteria and I put them in Acquisition Decision Memoranda.
