Workshop Agenda

OBJECTIVES

1.  Address the current state of sustainment.

a.  What factors are responsible for driving your systems' sustainment costs? Where is our sustainment money going today?

b.  How do those cost factors change over time?

c.  Have you been successful in more effectively “managing” system sustainment costs?

2.  Address the potential for science and technology to impact our future costs.

a.  What emerging technologies show promise to reduce or eliminate those sustainment cost drivers?

b.  How are you pursuing those opportunities? What “approaches” would you recommend to take advantage of emerging capabilities that might reduce our sustainment costs?
