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>

Discrete work packages and planning packages (or lower-level tasks/activities) along the CP have the least amount of float/slack (scheduling flexibility) and cannot be delayed without delaying the finish time of the end point effort. Essentially, CP has the same definition as Program CP with the exception that the end point can be a milestone or other point of interest in the schedule. For example, a CP could be run to Preliminary Design Review (PDR), Critical Design Review (CDR), and/or First Flight within a contract.</div>
