In today's aerospace industry, product life-cycles are often being extended far beyond a product's original design expectations. With fewer and fewer new aerospace products being introduced into the marketplace, there is a dramatic need for increased emphasis on supporting these products in the most efficient and effective manner possible throughout the entire product life-cycle. In addition to the initial product acquisition cost, customers are becoming more aware and sensitive to the product's total life-cycle cost. The long-term costs to operate, maintain, and otherwise sustain these products are often a determining factor in the initial product acquisition.
This two day seminar is intended to introduce participants to the various approaches, technologies, and tools available to support a product throughout the product's total life-cycle in the most efficient manner possible. Major topics presented and discussed during this seminar include The Elements of Logistics, Performance Based Logistics, Product Support Integration, and regulatory requirements. Collectively, the information presented in this seminar will equip attendees with the skills and techniques needed to help them comfortably and confidently develop the best tailored support package, satisfying the needs of both the customer and the provider.
