Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element - Sustaining Engineering2877647/27/2020 5:28:43 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>

It encompasses permanent and semipermanent real property assets required to support a system, including studies to define types of facilities or facility improvements, location, space needs, environmental and security requirements, and equipment. It also includes facilities for training, equipment storage, maintenance, supply storage, ammunition storage, and so forth. The objective of this IPS Element is to identify, plan, resource, and acquire facilities to enable training, maintenance and storage to maximize the effectiveness of system operation and the logistics support system at the lowest total ownership cost.</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>
