Public Private Partnering for Product Support

Date: Monday, December 7, 2015
Time: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Location: North 124 AB

Objective: Explore the opportunities to expand the aperture of traditional Public-Private Partnership beyond depot maintenance and into all aspects of product support.

Abstract: Innovative program managers and maintenance activities have expanded the use of Public-Private Partnership beyond the conventional realm of maintenance to embrace a greater scope of logistics functions. Conventional sustainment partnerships encompass supply support, technical data, and in-service engineering as inseparable from the effective performance of maintenance. Innovators are now reaching out to an even broader spectrum of strategic enablers through the lens of the partnership. Collaboration in development of sustainment strategy, design for maintenance, maintenance capability establishment, field support and process improvement all represent opportunities to take conventional partnerships to a new level. This panel will explore the art of the possible where expanded product support partnership opportunities exist; identify barriers, challenges and actions being taken to overcome them; and present current examples of innovative Public-Private Partnerships.
