Sustaining Capabilities and Mission Availability

03 January 2013 by General Dynamics Canada

Prior to the 1980s, military organisations had internal teams dedicated to managing every aspect of Inservice Support (ISS) for all platforms. Throughout this period, most of these teams struggled with three major challenges associated with sustaining effective ISS: a responsive supply chain, available engineering services, and effective training.

These challenges still exist today and, to truly address them, military organisations need a single integrated ISS program, which provides access to engineering and logistics support capabilities that can be applied to overall platform life cycle support requirements, addressing the key noted challenges.

This can only be achieved with an ISS program built on performance-based management principles, which monitor and adapt to product sustainability measures in real time to meet operational readiness objectives.
