1 Reconstituting the Life Cycle Logistics (LCL) (Acquisition) Workforce

2 2 Purpose To inform you on the Air Force Life Cycle Logistics (LCL) (Acquisition) Workforce Reconstitution initiative

3 3 Overview Background AFSO21 LCL (Acq) Workforce Event Objective Boundary Conditions On-going Workforce Development Efforts Governance / Focus Teams Events Summary

4 4 Background AFMC/CA Tasker “The Acquisition Logistics Workforce has eroded: Evaluate the Health of the Acquisition Logistics Workforce & fix it!” Reference: AFMC/CA tasker, 12 Oct 07 The AF must ensure a world class LCL (Acq) Workforce with the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to enable optimal life cycle product support for weapon systems / sub systems

5 5 Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century Playbook AFSO21 LCL (Acq) Workforce Event Problem Statement: The LCL (Acq) workforce responsible for ensuring supportability: 1. Is not effectively used during system acquisition (most critically prior to Milestone B); and, 2. Is not effectively managed and resourced to ensure availability of people proficient in the necessary LCL competencies impacting supportability of fielded systems.

6 6 Translating warfighter performance requirements into tailored product support spanning the system life cycle Value Proposition - What the Logistician brings to the table Where is the Logistician most effective? What are we doing to facilitate up-front Product Support Planning? BA Concept Refinement System Development & Demonstration Production & Deployment Systems Acquisition C FRP Decision Review LRIP/IOT&E Design Readiness Review Technology Development ( Program Initiation ) Concept Decision Pre-Systems Acquisition Operations & Support Sustainment Acquisition Sustainment (AS) Tool Kit Logistics Health Assessments (LHA) Independent Logistics Assessments (ILA) While the initial cost to acquire a weapon system is high …… …..Sustainment costs represent largest portion of total ownership costs Objective

7 7 Develop and “right-size” the Life Cycle Logistics (LCL) (Acq) Workforce engaged in system acquisition, with the competencies, skills and management support necessary to translate and design warfighter performance requirements into tailored, affordable, effective product support spanning the entire system life cycle Charter signed by co-champions: Mr. Michael Aimone, AF/A4/7 & Mrs. Barbara Westgate, AFMC/CA 15 May 08

8 8 Product Support Competencies (OSD Human Capital Strategy) Product Support Integration Manpower, Personnel & Training Requirements Planning Maintenance Planning & Management Program Management & Planning Deployed Distribution / Transportation Supply Management Boundary Conditions Focus on 346 series / AFSC 21XX (officer) & 2XXXX (enlisted) personnel involved in logistics planning activities during weapon system / subsystem acquisition without regard to: – Geographic location / Product and Air Logistics Centers – New or fielded system Use as template for other LCL competencies

9 9 On-going Workforce Development Efforts DoD Logistics Human Capital Strategy (HCS) (Big “L” – focus on entire career field) Integrated Life Cycle Management Product Support (ILCM PS) (Competency focus) LCL (Acq) WF Recon – focus on DAWIA coded positions – leverages off HCS LCL (Acq) WF Recon – career centric - lends fidelity to ILCM PS

13 Objectives: – Address creation of a quality, enterprise approach to Policy, Processes and Tools for the Life Cycle Logistician – Integrate AF Policy with tools and processes to ensure high confidence of product support in all programs across the acquisition life cycle. 13 Team LeadsTeam Members Jean Martin - AF/A4M Terry Brinston - AF/A4I Albert Griggs - SAF/ACE Peggy McMillen - OC-ALC Deb Inman - SAF/IEL Dennis Kicklighter – 598 CBSS Danny Bridges – AAC/ENQL Kandus Whitaker – ASC/AQY Chris Milius – HQ AFSPC/A4S Scott Dotson - WR- ALC/XPO LCL (Acq) Workforce Reconstitution Processes, Policy & Tools Focus Team
