Life Cycle Product Support

This classroom (CLRM) course is designed to help prepare the Life Cycle Logistician to perform in a senior-level life cycle logistics role with emphasis on developing and implementing a life cycle product support strategy. Learners will apply tools and techniques from the 12-step DoD Product Support Strategy Process Model in analyzing and comparing alternative product support strategies for adoption. The course challenges learners to think critically in instructor-facilitated group exercises to justify and make sound recommendations in developing and implementing product support strategies and product support arrangements. The intent is to provide a best-value mix of product support integrators, providers, and metrics to achieve Warfighter outcome-based requirements. This course combines asynchronous review of critical DoD policies, includes videos from other functional areas, in support of a group-developed final project.

The Life Cycle Product Support course is delivered in three (3) different formats:

  • LOG 3400 is strictly in person (0800-1700 Host region local time)
