New Training Available on Lead Free Electronics
DAU is pleased to announce the deployment of our newest web-based Life Cycle Logistics continuous learning module, CLL007 Lead Free Electronics Impact on DoD Programs. Introduction of lead-free electronics into DoD weapon systems have the potential to impact not only system reliability and availability, but also have supply chain management implications as well. This module provides an overview of the impact of commercial Lead-free mandates and their effect on DoD electronics programs. The module, developed by the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA), in collaboration with the National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE), operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), members of the Pb-free Electronics Risk Management (PERM) Consortium, the Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO)-sponsored DoD Soldering Technologies Working Group (STWG), and the Defense Acquisition University, addresses the major Lead-free related directives, DoD-related risks and mitigations, program considerations associated with Lead-free initiatives, and DoD's response to the various mandates and policy directives. Members of the Life Cycle Logistics, Production, Quality and Manufacturing (PQM), Systems Engineering, and Program Management, as well as other defense acquisition workforce communities are highly encouraged to take advantage of this important new on-line training module.
