The focus of the ASN(RD&A)ABM strategic plan is to reduce total
ownership costs of our systems, supplies, and services. We can achieve this
goal by applying modern business practices and relying on commercial vendors
to take advantage of new or emerging technologies and advancements to improve
system performance while reducing cost. We believe that sharing information
with industry and communicating with our stakeholders will enable us to
achieve this goal.
This guide represents an intiative to improve power
system management within the Department of the Navy. Developed by senior Navy
professionals and the power system industry, this guide provides a useful and
substantive reference for a hierarchy of information pertaining to all aspects
of power supply management - Program Management, Systems Engineering, Low
Voltage DC and High Voltage DC Power Supplies, and AC Power Supplies. I
encourage everyone to become familiar with this guide and to apply the
concepts and techniques presented to meet our power supply objectives.
