  • affordability constraints

    A program's unit procurement and sustainment cost goals or caps dictated by a Component's affordability analysis. Constraints are determined in a top-down manner by the resources a Component can allocate for a system given inventory objectives and all other fiscal demands on the Component—not by cost estimates. When approved affordability constraints cannot be met, then technical requirements, schedule, and required quantities must be revisited.
