New Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM+) Training
We are pleased to announce the deployment of our newest life cycle logistics online training (OLT) course entitled LOG 0290 Condition-Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+). This course introduces learners from across the defense acquisition workforce including life cycle logisticians, systems and sustaining engineers, and program managers to the concepts, practices and benefits of Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM+), including maintenance requirement reductions resulting from performing weapon system maintenance based evidence of need. It also provides insights into how CBM+ can reduce system life-cycle costs through implementation of an integrated strategy of enabling technologies, processes and procedures focused on a broad range of weapon systems sustainment improvements. LOG 0290 is intended for workforce members involved in the acquisition and sustainment of major weapons systems and equipment, including program managers, systems engineers, and life cycle logisticians. For additional insights into this important topic, see also DoD Instruction 4151.22 Condition Based Maintenance Plus for Materiel Maintenance and the DoD Condition Based Maintenance Plus Guidebook.
We would also be remiss if we did not express our thanks and appreciation to the many DoD and Service CBM+ subject matter experts who supported this important content update.
Astute observers will note that DAU previously offered a similarly titled course. This new LOG 0290 online training course (OLT) leverages updated content from -- and replaces -- the now-retired CLL 029 continuous learning module. You will also note the replacement of CLL designation by LOG, which represents the new standard for all DAU logistics and product support courses going forward. This new LOG 0290 also represents the twelfth of these revamped, revised, and re-designated DAU life cycle logistics OLT modules, which now include:
- LOG 0020 Defense Logistics Agency Support to the Program Manager
- LOG 0080 Designing for Supportability in DoD Systems
- LOG 0120 Supportability Analysis Fundamentals
- LOG 0140 Packaging of Hazardous Material
- LOG 0230 Title 10 U.S.C. 2464 Core Statute Implementation
- LOG 0250 Depot Maintenance Inter-Service Support Agreements (DMISA)
- LOG 0290 Condition-Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+)
- LOG 0300 Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)
- LOG 0360 The DoD Shelf-Life Program
- LOG 0370 DoD Supply Chain Fundamentals
- LOG 0460 The Twelve Integrated Product Support Elements
- LOG 0570 Level of Repair Analysis (LORA)
So what does this mean for me, you might ask? DAU's legacy three-digit course numbering schema is gradually being phased out and replaced by a new four-digit course numbering taxonomy. Through attrition, updated and new courses will eventually all be re-designated with four-digit course numbers and LOG prefixes. These changes are being made for a range of reasons including to align with updated course content, provide better configuration control, improve standardization, and reduce the number of course designations, among others. Details are available in two previous LOG Blog posts: "Revamped & Updated DAU Training Courses" as well as "DAU Logistics Training Course Numbering Changes".
