Product Support Strategy Development, Part A

This Online Training (OLT) course is the first part in a two-course series designed for foundational life-cycle logisticians. It provides a dynamic, real-time learning environment oriented toward developing the managerial and technical logistics competencies of the life-cycle logistician. Special emphasis is placed on the roles and responsibilities of the life-cycle logistician in the areas of Integrated Product Support Element activities, outputs and integration; translating warfighter requirements to Product Support Strategies; and optimizing and managing risk within the Product Support Strategy. The course requires participants to review current policy and guidance and demonstrate an understanding of how early integration of operational supportability into the system development process leads to achievement of DoD’s strategic logistics goals.
