Organizational Capability Maturity Model

The Council of Logistics Engineering Professionals (CLEP) has developed the “Organizational Capability Model for Logistics Engineering” (OCM-LE) to provide a conceptual approach for evaluating the maturity of an organizations processes in the areas of Logisitics Management and Logisitics Engineering services.

While there are many variations and flavors of logistics engineering practices, the objective of this document is to establish a baseline foundation, or framework, to help build a more refined evaluation process that can then be tailored to the specific needs of individual logistics engineering organizations. The overall goal in offering this unique guide lies with the hope that it will help facilitate the progress and growth of practicing logistics engineering organizations currently operating in both industrial and government sectors.

This guide offers a new approach tool to help quantify an organization’s overall logistics engineering effectiveness. It offers a methodology to evaluate a measurable level of logistics performance for supporting program development and operational sustainment throughout a system’s planned life cycle.

The monograph contains the following sections and appendices:
1.0 Introduction
2.0 The Organizational Evaluation Process
3.0 Organizational Capability Maturity Model: Logistics Engineering (OCM?LE)
4.0 Case Studies
5.0 Conclusions
