Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element - Sustaining Engineering2877641/12/2022 5:53:52 PMSustaining Engineering consists of a combination of systems engineering and product support life-cycle management Historically, Sustaining Engineering activities https://www.dau.edu/acquipedia/Lists/Acquipedia Article/quick.aspxFalse<div class="ExternalClassE71D9DEC24A140019213D9AB860B479A">Technical tasks (engineering and logistics investigations and analyses) to ensure continued operation and maintenance of a system with managed risk. This involves identification, review, assessment, and resolution of deficiencies throughout a system's life cycle. Implementation of selected corrective actions, to include configuration or maintenance processes, and monitoring of key sustainment metrics include&#58; • Collection and triage of all service use and maintenance data, • Analysis of safety hazards, failure causes and effects, reliability and maintainability trends, and operational usage profiles changes, • Root cause analysis of in-service problems (e.g., operational hazards, deficiency reports, parts obsolescence, corrosion effects, etc.), • Development of required design changes to resolve operational issues, • Other activities necessary to ensure cost-effective support to achieve peacetime and wartime readiness and performance requirements over a system's life-cycle.</div>
