This proposed standard identifies the metrics, tolerances, approved procedures, and required documentation to (1) evaluate the current performance, (2) establish the basis to create performance improvement specifications, (3) identify approved approaches to implement the specified improvements, and (4) establish the procedures to objectively assess the performance change of the completed improvements.

The changes to the normative portions of the standard (§1 - §7 and Appendix A) are open for review and comment. Unchanged portions of the document are provided for context.
