2 Overview Mission Leadership Benefits Methodology and Process List of ProjectsInitiativesContactsThese are the topics that are in this presentation.
3 Mission DoD/NASA flag officer group Chartered to Originally created in 1994 at industry requestChartered by JLC/NASA HQsChartered toReduce or eliminate system hazardous material requirements: Project BenefitsAvoid duplication of effort: Consensus BuildingReduce technical risk: Stakeholder OwnershipTransfer technology: DocumentationLeverage opportunities, reduce costs: Cost ControlDual focus on uniform implementationAcquisition (Contractor design) and sustainment community (Depot) needsManufacturing and maintenance processesFor those of you not familiar with the JG-PP, it is a flag officer level body from the services, NASA and DLA chartered by the Joint Logistics Commanders in 1994.As you see the charter, there is a focus on avoiding duplication of efforts in P2 projects.The JG-PP origins lay within the acquisition community, both in the program offices and the OEMs. From the P2 perspective, the aim is to harmonize processes used in the development of a weapon system with those used to sustain the system once it has been deployed.

6 Six Phase Methodology Identify P2 Needs Stakeholder Buy-in Joint Test ProtocolLessons LearnedI. IdentificationPotential Alternatives ReportVI. Evaluation/ FeedbackII. Technical/ BusinessCost-Benefit AnalysisV. ImplementationIII. Alternatives TestingFunding AgreementsJG-PP applies a Six-Phase Methodology on each project to implement material or process changes at Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or depot/maintenance facilities.Methodology is flexible to account for different needs of OEMs, programs, and depotsProvides technical and business support and facilitates the projectsAssists in identifying resources for validation testing of alternativesTarget – continuous process Inner Circle – Project Cycle Outer Circle - ProductsPhase 1 – Identification Products: Joint 1-N needs list- Participants select target hazardous material(s)- Obtain contractor/program managers agreement to participatePhase 2 – Technical/Business Products: JTP, Stakeholder Buy-in, PAR, CBA- Define performance requirements Joint Test Protocol (JTP) report; Identify alternatives to hazardous material(s) usage; Obtain consensus among stakeholders- Determine who benefits from the project; Identify sources of funding; Develop plan to satisfy project expensesPhase 3 - Alternatives Testing Products: JTR- Validate alternative(s) (lab testing/field demonstration )Phase 4 - Process Change/Authorization Products: Authorization Letter, Manual/Spec ChangesFor industry, changes not required if material/process change satisfies performance requirements specified in contract; DCMS Single Process Initiative can execute a change modification (block change) for changes to single/multiple contracts as required.Each Program Office/Depot process owner is responsible for issuing approval for change to material and application within their respective manufacturing and maintenance processesProcess Change Authorization - OEMs will utilize the Single Process Initiative (SPI) block change process or performance based specifications to modify contracts for implementation across all affected systems and components.Depots will utilize their respective service/agency change mechanism for implementation.Phase 5 - Implement alternative(s) Product: Technology TransferImplementation plan, follow-up on transition for success stories/issues/concernsPhase 6 – Evaluation/Feedback- Review effectiveness and inefficiencies of process and identify new areas for improvementsImplementation PlanIV.

8 Strengths and Challenges Improves communicationFacilitates partnershipsIdentifies shared opportunitiesReduces duplicationReduces riskLeverages funding resourcesChallengesObtaining agreement and buy-in from StakeholdersEngaging Acquisition and OEM CommunitiesDecreasing R&D budgetsImproved communication – Cross feeding of efforts across DoD/NASAensures all potential solutions are identified and all concerns are voiced by collaborating together ideas and test results of similar test effortsreduces duplication of effort in performing common tests across DoD/NASA/IndustryReduced Technical Risk- Through the collaboration/coordination with a diverse experienced knowledge base of personnel consisting of laboratory, engineering, field level personnel, management, and industrial hygienist, to name a few.Leverage Funding ResourcesThrough established partnerships/collaboration, limited funds/resources go a bit further with cost sharing between DoD and IndustryChallengesGetting stakeholder buy-in upfront – identifying appropriate personnel and getting them involved early in the projectengaging Acquisition and OEM community (working with AT&L, AIA, DMCA)the continuing decrease in R&D budget to work on new technology/processes and most importantly – getting them implemented.
