4. General Requirements
4.1. Assess test and measurement requirements
The contractor shall assess system and equipment test and measurement requirements during all phases of design, development, and production. The contractor shall identify all parameters that must be measured to ensure proper and accurate operation of the system and equipment. The system shall be designed to reduce maintenance by keeping the frequency, number, and duration of the tests required to verify proper system operation to a minimum,
4.2 Ensure accessibility of parameters
The contractor shall, by designing for testability, ensure ready accessibility of parameters which must be measured to verify proper and accurate system and equipment operationn.

This standard described the requirement to provide a means for calibration and measurement traceability of all system, subsystem, and equipment parameters that must be measured to ensure system and equipment operational integrity and accuracy. It describes the process of establishing measurement traceability from actual system and equipment level measurement requirements to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) or other approved measurement sources. These measurement requirements are traced through properly selected and calibrated test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment (TMDE) or appropriate measurement sensors, through individual Military Department or commercial calibration facilities, to approved national measurement standards.
