Supportability and Logistics Engineering – Advances and Applications Workshop
What: CLEP’s 2021 Two-Day Professional Logistician’s Workshop.
When: Tuesday and Wednesday November 9 and 10
Time: 12:30 p.m. EST to 5:15 p.m. EST Each Day
Events: We have ten workshop presentations scheduled, as well as opening keynote speaker and closing speaker.
Our symposium will be opened by Ms. Leigh E. Method.
Ms. Leigh E. Method will be opening our workshop as Keynote speaker. She is a 24-year Air Force veteran, retiring as a colonel. A career logistician, Ms. Method deployed in support of operations Joint Endeavor and Enduring Freedom. Her last assignment prior to retirement was as Commander of the 76th Commodities Maintenance Group, Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. She is currently Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Logistics and serves as the principal advisor to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Sustainment.
Our lineup of presentations:
|Paul Haslam||O’Neil & Associates, Inc.||Product Supportability through Lifecyle Modeling and Simulation||How should the funding be distributed to achieve the optimal balance between readiness, mission performance, and cost?|
|Beth Carlock||ISS Corp|
|Justin Woulfe||Systecon North America||Next Generation Optimization and Simulation: Leveraging advances in computing for tactical decision making and optimization of complex mission scenarios||Advances in computational performance combined with an evolutionary algorithm provides a powerful tool for heuristic optimization of complex scenarios.||
|Mike Gourley||Lockheed Martin||Logistics Engineering in 21st Century PBL||PBL continues to be DoD’s preferred life cycle system support strategy. This session will address lifecycle logistics engineering to support future PBL arrangements.|
|Lucas Marino||EAST Partnership and MCS, LLC||Seeing Through Silos: the Importance of Activity-Based Perspectives in Support Analysis|
|John Sofia||Life Cycle Engineering||Application of Variance Reduction to Logistics Engineering||Variation of systems, sub systems and components impact Fleet readiness, availability and cost. The proliferation of variation in Fleet systems continues to hamper the Navy’s ability to shorten the supply chain and minimize our vulnerabilities to logistically sustain our deployed Fleet. This brief intends to discuss the issue and an opportunity to reduce variation within the constraints of the Navy’s supply system.|
|James V. Jones||Logistics Management Associates||The New TA-STD 0017A – PSA on Steroids||The soon to be released updated TA STD 0017A, Product Support Analysis (PSA), ushers in a new era of supportability engineering. The modifications to this standard reveal an enhanced opportunity for product design improvement and sustainment performance. This presentation focuses on providing a historical perspective as to why PSA is invaluable, a brief discussion of the changes, modifications, and additions to the new 0017A, and thoughts on the optimal implementation of the PSA process to achieve maximum benefit with the best ROI.|
|Vijay Chachra and Cameron Badgley||Andromeda Systems Inc.||How the Digital thread is helping maximize operational availability by tying PSA with IoT/CBM+ to drive optimized maintenance planning and execution.||Upping the ante on RCM driven conditioned based maintenance with IoT and AI. Showcase the seamless integration of supportability analysis data with maintenance planning and IoT driven maintenance execution.|
|Peter Stuttard||Aspire Consulting Ltd||Addressing the Support Case, a UK MoD perspective||There are several standards which address the need for engineering ‘cases’ including the UK ILS Def Stan 00-600 which requires a “Supportability Case” to be generated. The Support Case is powerful, but underutilized, ILS tool. This presentation discusses the concept and the benefits it brings to a ILS programme.|
