NAVAIR Assistant Program Manager for Logistics (APML) Essentials Homepage
Kudos to our colleagues at the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) for their comprehensive “APML Essentials Homepage”. Although this CAC-enabled site is primarily intended for the Naval Aviation community, it contains some excellent resources and reference documents on a variety of logistics topics that might be helpful to life cycle logisticians elsewhere in the Navy and in other DoD organizations. Intended to “provide easily updated, essential knowledge to the APML user community in various topical areas of logistics acquisition and system sustainment”, the site contains such excellent references as:
- Essentials of Logistics Acquisition Spec/SOW Development - Essential information for development of a Specification or Statement of Work, including insights, issues and sample contract language for 24 ILS functional areas.
- Essentials of Fleet Introduction/Implementation. - Essential information for development of a Fleet Introduction Plan.
- Essentials of the Logistics Requirements and Funding Summary (LRFS) - Essential information for development of an LRFS, including guidance, WBS data elements and a development tool.
- Essentials of Integrated In-Service Reliability Program (iiSRP) - Essential information for IISRP analysis processes and documentation.
- Essentials of Independent Logistics Assessments (ILA) - Essential process for periodic assessments of a program’s planning and its implementation of ILS, and the ability of the logistics program to meet established performance requirements.
- Essentials of Initial Operational Capability Supportability Review (IOCSR) Group - Essential process, training and schedule information related to Initial Operational Capability Supportability Review.
- Essentials of Performance Based Logistics (PBL) - Outcome based support concept that plans and delivers an integrated, affordable, performance package designed to optimize system readiness.
- Essentials of Software Logistics - The role of software as the most critical part of weapons systems is growing.
- Essentials of Deactivation, Demilitarization & Disposal (DD&D) - Each acquisition program is required to develop a plan as part of the logistics documentation that addresses DD&D of the weapon system at the end of its useful life.
- Logistics Handbook - Version 1.2, dated Oct 2009. Focuses on the processes, specific information, guidelines, and ready references to work within the acquisition cycle.
Encourage you to take a few minutes to peruse this excellent life cycle logistics resource when you get a chance.
