Product Support Lifecycle Costing Training by Tonex

Agile-Driven DevOps Engineering Training

Product Support Lifecycle Costing Training is a 2-day training workshop. The Department of Defense (DoD) Acquisition Process is one of three (3) processes (Acquisition, Requirements and Funding) that make up and support the Defense Acquisition System and is implemented by DoD Instruction 5000.02 “Operation of the Adaptive Acquisition Framework”.

Product Support Lifecycle Costing Training provides product support instruction, policies and cost principles that govern the defense acquisition system and forms the management foundation for all DoD programs part of Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD).

Product Support Lifecycle Costing Training is a comprehensive program designed to equip professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage the costs associated with supporting and sustaining a product throughout its lifecycle.

This training offers a deep dive into the principles, methodologies, and tools required to make informed decisions about product support, cost analysis, and optimization. Participants will gain a solid foundation in cost estimation, control, and reduction strategies, ensuring they can contribute to their organizations’ profitability and sustainability.
