​Does anyone have experience with PBLs for non-Programs of Record, particularly those with non-standard equipment that is outside of the DoD inventory?

A 16 Sep 21 Defense News article by Valerie Insinna cites F-35 PEO, Lt Gen Eric Fick, as stating, "We're using ... the incentive of the PBL to help us get decent pricing on the tech data required [for the services to do more sustainment organically], so that at the end of that PBL, the services and the department have an option moving forward."  This is an example of PBL Tenet #7, where there is no one-size fits all incentive structure.  It's also a great reminder that during Production and Deployment it's important to assess the availability of cost and technical data to inform PBL decisions.  See the PBL Guidebook, para 1.6.4 for more details.

​Attention PBL practitioners!  DAU is in the process of updating its 3-day PBL Workshop (WSL 001) Virtual instructor-led format and will post an update to the iCatalog in the next few months.  A recent offering highlighted the importance of IPTs, effective metrics, relevant incentives, and ways to improve life cycle cost and support to the Warfighter.  The workshop also includes emphasis on critical thinking that challenge traditional ways of doing business.
