  • understand the key concepts of LCM, e.g., operational effectiveness, availability performance, Life Cycle Cost (LCC), Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) and Reliability Availability Maintainability and Safety (RAMS)
  • obtain ideas/material to promote implementation of LCM within your organization
  • understand the potential and benefits from applying LCM to your product/project
  • be introduced to LCM-related methodology and analyses, assisting you in various phases of your product/system life cycle, e.g.:
    - requirements analysis and LCC prediction in conceptual design phase
    - the principles of LCC-based acquisition
    - how to analyze and balance support system investments against their foreseen effect
