Historical Parts Management References

MIL-HDBK-512 and Data Item Descriptions (DIDS)

This handbook is a guide for Military Acquisition Activities (AA) in the preparation of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) with respect to a parts management program, and will help determine to what extent parts management should be for a given program. It will also identify those elements in a proposal to manage the selection and use of parts. This document will also provide insight for the contractor in the preparation of RFP responses in that it will allow the contractor to identify parts management program attributes that are considered important by the government.

MIL-HDBK-512, and the DIDs related to Parts Management and Part Selection/Approval, are available as Adobe Acrobat files in pdf format.
