New Integrated Product Support Credential Deploys
Bill Kobren
Your DAU life cycle logsitics colleagues are pleased to announce the deployment of the tenth in a series of 15 new integrated product support (IPS) element-based life cycle logistics credentials entitled CLCL 002 Integrated Product Support Credential.

This exciting new multi-disciplinary credential brings together eight on-line training (OLT) courses and supporting resources to offer a comprehensive overview of Life Cycle Product Support Management, including the Life Cycle Sustainment Plan, Performance Based Logistics, 12 Integrated Product Support Elements, sustainment metrics, Product Support Business Case Analysis, Independent Logistics Assessment, Logistics Test & Evaluation, and Risk Management. It is designed to provide learners an overarching understanding of the Life Cycle Logistician’s role in planning and executing performance-based life cycle product support strategies. A capstone exercise and summative examination must be completed to demonstrate the learner’s ability to apply what they have learned. The target audience includes defense acquisition workforce personnel from all functional areas, including life cycle logistics, engineering & technical management, business/financial management, cost estimating, contracting, test & evaluation and program management.

With five additional product support-focused credentials currently in development and slated to deploy in the coming months, we now have ten available life cycle logistics credentials, including:
