This program offering is designed to examine the components and characteristics of effective logistics systems. Emphasis is placed on identification of the life cycle phases and the important considerations in developing cost models that predict the likely total ownership cost of major weapon system projects.
Learning methodologies include lecture, open discussion, in class exercises and case studies.
*Participants will work on a small group project aimed at development of a range of estimates for the purchase, sustainment, and disposal of a major weapon system considering factors such as organic versus contractor logistics support, risks, and international factors that influence cost.
This program offering is designed for international military officers and civilian equivalents of grades 04-06 who are involved in and/or manage logistics and life cycle management of projects.
This program offering is exported and customized given a country’s specific requirements. Please contact the IDARM Program Manager, Ms. Kathleen Peggar, for scheduling.
