The report is designed to illustrate cost savings which would result from specific efforts in the areas of product improvement in quality and design. For the purpose of this study the cost savings produced in the area of product improvement are based on total elimination of a certain failure mode or modes. Appropriate modes are chosen because of their proportion of the total removals or their proportion in combination with other similar modes. These eliminated removals are then assumed to follow the distribution of the remaining removal modes. The actual cost savings are determined from the increase in the mean time to removal based on the new removal distributions.

The DORCA Applications study has been directed at development of a data bank management computer program identified as DORMAN. Because of the size of the DORCA data files and the manipulations required on that data to support analyses with the DORCA program, automated data techniques to replace time-consuming manual input generation are required. The Dynamic Operations Requirements and Cost Analysis (DORCA) program was developed for use by NASA in planning future space programs. Both programs are designed for implementation on the UNIVAC 1108 computing system. The purpose of this Executive Summary Repon is to define for the NASA management the basic functions of the DORMAN program and its capabilities.

The information concentration of a legible microphotograph made at a reduction ratio of 1200 is computed to be over 2 x 1 million bits/ sq mm. Reasons are adduced for using a mosaic of squares having sides equal to the reciprocal of the resolving power, each being capable of assuming one of two density ranges. as a model of a high contrast material for the computation of information capacity. It follows that the information capacity is equal to the square of the resolving power. This relation gives values of information capacity in good accord with the values computed by the Jones theory. The information capacity of a Kodak high resolution plate is computed to be 3.25 x 1 million bits/sq mm. That the product of reduction ratio times quality index equals the product of resolving power times the height of the lower case in type to be copied is verified at the high reduction ratio, and this relationship is considered useful for engineering computations involving the copying of commonly used styles of type
