Performance-Based Logistics (PBL)

This fast-paced, multi-disciplinary Online Training (OLT) course is focused on developing an understanding of outcome-based product support strategies. It teaches professionals about the interrelationship of Performance Based Logistics (PBL) policy and practice and demonstrates the linkage between PBL and the acquisition process, the Product Support Business Model, and the 12-step Product Support Strategy Process Model. Professionals will gain knowledge of how the early integration of supportability factors into the systems-development process can help lead to successful outcome-based support strategies and optimized system readiness throughout a weapon system's life cycle. In this updated version of the course, learners are immersed in a video-based weapon system scenario and solve real-world problems along with the Program Manager, Product Support Manager, and Life Cycle Logistician. The course also provides an overview of requirements to design, develop, implement, and oversee a PBL program to include an understanding of Title 10 requirements, product support arrangement types, metrics, and incentives.
