​Recently took over position as program DAPML and I'm new to much of the work. Our LCSP is incredibly out of date in several areas, especially when it comes to updates related to PSAs. I realize that the LCSP doesn't require approved updates at every turn, but being a living document, waiting to update it with relevant information only at specific intervals is obviously not an effective system. Currently working on a plan to incorporate a working copy that updates as information becomes available. Looking for ideas that have worked on other programs that prompt team members / stakeholders to provide inputs as the become relevant

​Please take a few minutes to introduce yourself to the community: what are your interests, your expertise that you'd be willing to share with the community, your questions that need answered?

Are there requirements to update any Product Support program documents after a system is in service? I presume that the LCSP might be a candidate if the PS strategy has changed.  The only specific reference I can find is in NAVSO P3562 (Logistics Assessments), which only cites the PESHE: "... continually updated and maintained throughout the progression of a program or project, from concept to disposal."
