S (Operation and Support) costs. At a December 1998 DSAC (Defense Systems Affordability Council), each service agreed to provide 10 program names for the 912c study. DoD would continue to track all 30 service pilot programs as R-TOC programs. This thesis analyzes the utilization of Reduction of Total Ownership Costs (R-TOC) pilot programs in DoD Services. It identifies the lessons learned from the R-TOC pilot programs and the obstacles encountered to promote efficient reductions in the Total Ownership Costs of DoD weapon systems. It also makes recommendations for DoD leadership to establish a more efficient R-TOC environment. The conclusion is that the performance of R-TOC is efficient because it forces PMs to consider TOC in their programs, and helps to identify obstacles, and encourages saving initiatives. Although further progress will be captured by blocking the inhibitors identified in Chapter IV, OSD should continue advocating R-TOC.
