Fleet Readiness Logistics Course

Fleet Readiness Logistics Course is a 3-day training program. Participants will learn about day-to-day Fleet Readiness Logistics occupational knowledge and skill requirements. In completing Fleet Readiness Logistics training course, participants will demonstrate knowledge of procedures and policies for fleet reediness and logistic aspects.

In completing Fleet Readiness Logistics training course, participants will demonstrate knowledge of fleet reediness and logistic aspects.

Fleet acquisition logistics is a multi-functional, technical management discipline associated with the design, development, test, production, fielding, sustainment, and improvement modifications of systems. Most of a system’s life-cycle costs can be attributed directly to operations and support costs once the system is fielded.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the fleet readiness logistics training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Explain the basic principles and concepts of fleet readiness logistics
  • List related fleet readiness logistics standards, processes, procedures, policies and benefits
  • Describe the guidance on fleet readiness logistics
  • Illustrate potential fleet readiness logistics use cases, decisions and implementation scenarios
  • Explain impact of economic and noneconomic considerations and readiness objectives, logistic support cost, total life cycle cost of ownership, and operational readiness of the product
  • Describe Product Support Analysis (PSA) disciplines related to effective maintenance programs in fleet readiness logistics
  • Explain the basics of fleet acquisition and systems engineering and product life cycles
  • Describe fleet readiness logistics implementation and performance strategies
  • List tools and methodologies for developing effective repair management strategies
  • Explain fleet readiness logistics role within asset management and in-depth analysis
  • Explore fleet readiness logistics best practice and lessons learned

The principal objectives of fleet readiness logistics are to ensure:

  • That support considerations are an integral part of the system’s design requirements.
  • The system can be cost effectively supported throughout its life cycle.
  • Product Support elements necessary to the initial fielding and operational support of the system are identified, developed, and acquired.
  • The Program Manager (PM) and Product Support Manager (PSM) is responsible for accomplishing these principal program objectives across the life cycle of a system, including the Operating & Support (O&S) phase. Employing Performance-Based Life-Cycle Product Support tied to Sustainment Metrics is the overarching DoD acquisition logistics concept for providing Materiel Availability, Supportability, and readiness to the user.

Fleet acquisition and readiness logistics activities are most effective when they are integral to both the contractor’s and Government’s acquisition, System Engineering Process, operations, and management and addressed early in the Acquisition Processes.

Prerequisites: None

Methods of Learning: The methods of learning will be conducted through an immersive workshop to include, lectures, case studies, and simulations. Handouts for each student and other training material will be provided by the vendor as part of the training.
