Reduce Total Ownership Cost(R-TOC)


The R-TOC program is to achieve readiness improvements in systems by improving the reliability of the system or the efficiency of the process to support them.

Reduce Total Ownership Cost(R-TOC)


A May 1999 memo from the USD/A&T stressed that the purpose of R-TOC was to maintain or improve current readiness while reducing O&S costs. The memo instructed the Services to focus on three general R-TOC approaches.

  • Reliability, maintainability, and supportability (RM&S) improvements

  • Reduction of logistics cycle time

  • Competitive product support.

    A DoD "Strategy for Affordability" established a 20% O&S cost reduction goal for FY2005.

Lesson 4 – R-TOC Tools: Examples of tools are risk analysis tools, Cost as an independent variable, and metrics that support R-TOC.

Lesson 5 – Suggested R-TOC Practices: to include presentations on COTS & NDI, Technology insertion, and managing non-core competencies.

Lesson 6 – R-TOC in Practice (Car Buying Exercise): This is revisiting the practical exercise in Lesson 2 to examine the initial their decision in light of new facts, decisions, information, and rationale provide by subsequent lessons.

Course Maintenance & Relevance:

  • The CDSC team with work closely with IDA & Meridian representatives to ensure consistency and timeliness between the R-TOC lesson and the R-TOC Guide Book.

  • The R-TOC lesson developer and other CDSC members will make presentations to and participate in R-TOC Working Group forums to ensure user focus in DAU’s R-TOC lessons.

  • User representation and involvement in the R-TOC lesson development and implementation process is an ever-present necessity and reality.
