New DAU Designing Supportable Systems Credential DAU Designing Supportable Systems Credential2022-05-16T12:00:00Z,<div class="ExternalClass79C2770091494BA9B4B137535548D29F">Your DAU colleagues are pleased to announce the deployment of our 11<sup>th</sup> multi-disciplinary Life Cycle Logistics credential entitled “<a href="">CLCL 006 Designing Supportable Systems Credential</a>”. Aligned with the Design Interface Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element, this new credential is now available for student registration.<br> <br> This exciting new product support credential brings together 11 on-line training (OLT) courses and supporting resources to offer a comprehensive overview and application of designing supportable weapon systems. The credential is based on the Design Interface Integrated Product Support (IPS) element and identifies key activities and responsibilities to facilitate designing supportable systems. Students must successfully complete each of the courses, a capstone exercise, and summative examination to demonstrate the ability to apply what they have learned. The target audience for this exciting new credential is defense acquisition workforce and sustainment personnel, including but not limited to life cycle logisticians, product support managers (PSM), program managers (PM), and systems engineers.<br> <br> With four additional product support-focused credentials slated to deploy in the coming months, we now have eleven life cycle logistics credentials available, including: <ul> <li><a href="">CLCL 001 Product Support Management Fundamentals Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 002 Integrated Product Support Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 003 Supply Chain Integration Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 004 Maintenance Planning & Management Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 005 Supportability & Design Interface Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 006 Designing Supportable Systems Credential</a> <em>– </em><strong><em>New!</em></strong></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 009 Information Technology Life Cycle Support Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 010 Technical Data Management Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 011 Product Support Affordability & Cost Fundamentals Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 012 Product Support O&S Cost Management Credential</a></li> <li><a href="">CLCL 014 Parts & Material Life Cycle Management Credential</a> </li> </ul> The deployment of this new CLCL 006 credential also brings to 32 the total number of multi-disciplinary defense acquisition credentials now available from DAU, which now include: <ul> <li><strong>Acquisition Management</strong> <ul> <li>CACQ 001 Services Acquisition for non-Acquisition Professional Team Members</li> <li>CACQ 002 Services Acquisition for Acquisition Professional Team Members</li> <li>CACQ 004 Introduction to Risk, Issue, and Opportunity Management Credential</li> <li>CACQ 006 Acquisition Law & Policy</li> <li>CACQ 008 Foundational Intellectual Property (IP) Credential </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Acquisition Leadership Development</strong> <ul> <li>CALD 001 Resilience Credential </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Contracting</strong> <ul> <li>CCON 002 Business Foundations Credential</li> <li>CCON 007 Defective Pricing Credential</li> <li>CCON 011 Construction Contracting Credential</li> <li>CCON 012 Architect-Engineering Contracting Credential</li> <li>CCON 014A Foundational Contingency Contracting</li> <li>CCON 015 Advanced Contingency Contracting</li> <li>CCON 018 Excel Skills for Business Credential</li> <li>CCON 021 Contracting for Research & Development Credential </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Cybersecurity</strong> <ul> <li>CCYB 001 Program Protection Credential</li> <li>CCYB 002 Cybersecurity for Program Managers Credential </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Engineering</strong> <ul> <li>CENG 001 Digital Engineering for DoD Consumers</li> <li>CENG 002 Data Analytics for DoD Acquisition Managers Credential</li> <li>CENG 004 Agile DoD Team Member </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Industrial Contract Property Management</strong> <ul> <li>CIND 001 Industrial Contract Property Management Credential </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Life Cycle Logistics</strong> <ul> <li>CLCL 001 Product Support Management Fundamentals Credential</li> <li>CLCL 002 Integrated Product Support Credential</li> <li>CLCL 003 Supply Chain Integration Credential</li> <li>CLCL 004 Maintenance Planning & Management Credential</li> <li>CLCL 005 Supportability & Design Interface Credential</li> <li>CLCL 006 Designing Supportable Systems Credential<em>– </em><strong><em>New!</em></strong></li> <li>CLCL 009 Information Technology Life Cycle Support Credential</li> <li>CLCL 010 Technical Data Management Credential</li> <li>CLCL 011 Product Support Affordability & Cost Fundamentals Credential</li> <li>CLCL 012 Product Support O&S Cost Management Credential</li> <li>CLCL 014 Parts & Material Life Cycle Management Credential </li> </ul> </li> <li><strong>Small Business</strong> <ul> <li>CSBP 001 Small Business Professional Credential</li> </ul> </li> </ul> For additional information, encourage you to visit our <a href="/training/pages/credentials.aspx">Defense Acquisition Credentials Program homepage</a>, as well as the <a href="">DAU iCatalog Credentials listing</a> and the excellent new <a href="">DAWIA Certification & Development Guides</a> for each defense acquisition workforce functional area.</div>string;#/training/career-development/logistics/blog/New-DAU-Designing-Supportable-Systems-Credential

By coordinating within and across supply chains, this partnership will also increase the effectiveness of government programs that aim to promote investment in these cutting-edge technologies.” For additional information on the <em>AM Forward</em> initiative itself, in addition to the announcement above, several related resources include:</p> <ul> <li>·<a href=""><em>Additive Manufacturing Forward (AM Forward)</em> Public-Private Compact</a></li> <li>·<a href="">Biden Administration Celebrates Launch of <em>AM Forward</em> and Calls on Congress to Pass Bipartisan Innovation Act</a></li> </ul> <p>For additional information on additive manufacturing within the Department of Defense, encourage you to visit our DAU <a href="/cop/am/Pages/Default.aspx">Additive Manufacturing Community of Practice (AM CoP)</a>, as well as key DoD resources including <a href="">DoD Instruction 5000.93 Use of Additive Manufacturing in the DoD</a> and the <a href="">DoD Additive Manufacturing Strategy</a>.</p> As a reminder, <a href="">DoD Instruction 5000.93</a> defines additive manufacturing as “a process of joining materials to make parts from three-dimensional model data, usually layer by layer, also known as three-dimensional printing.” Also, as a reminder, your colleagues here at DAU offer a range of learning assets and related resources on this important topic, including: <ul> <li><a href="">LOG 0390 Additive Manufacturing Overview</a> online training course</li> <li>LOG 0400 Additive Manufacturing Case Studies online training course (<em>in development</em>)</li> <li>DAU “<a href="">AM Zone” Media Chanel</a></li> <li>DAU “<a href="/Events">AM is Here!” Webinar Series</a> <ul style="list-style-type:circle;"> <li>November 2020: How far have we really come using Additive Manufacturing?</li> <li>February 2021: What is the state of the art of AM?</li> <li>April 2021: AM Ground System Case Studies</li> <li>June 2021: AM Maritime Weapon System Case Studies</li> <li>August 2021: AM Air Weapon System Case Studies</li> <li>December 2021: Intellectual Property Legal Experts on Additive Manufacturing​</li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="">DAU “AM Zone” animated AM micro-learning videos for each of the 12 IPS Elements</a></li> <li><a href="">Multi-media online course: “3D Opportunity - The Course on Additive Manufacturing for Business Leaders” (in partnership with Deloitte University)</a></li> <li><a href="/cop/am/Pages/Default.aspx">Additive Manufacturing Community of Practice (AM CoP)</a></li> <li><a href="/acquipedia/pages/articledetails.aspx#!448">Additive Manufacturing ACQuipedia Article</a></li> <li><a href="/library/defense-atl/p/Defense-ATandL---November-December_2016">Special AM-themed Issue of Defense AT&L Magazine</a></li> </ul></div>string;#/training/career-development/logistics/blog/New-Additive-Manufacturing-Forward-Initiative
