Integrated Product Support Training, A 3-day Hands-on Integrated Product Support (IPS) Training Course

Integrated Product Support Training is a 3-day training program covering many aspects of Integrated Product Support (IPS) primarily designed for Product Support Manager (PSM) and  Life Cycle Logistician in better understanding the scope, products, deliverable scheduling, and associated activities that are within the scope of the PSM position.

Integrated Product Support training will cover IPS Element and its supporting material aligned with DoD approved IPS Element objective. Learn about IPS implementation for each element throughout the life cycle to include the “who, what, where, when, how and why” plus related best practices, resources and key references.
