DoD has directed Military Departments to implement Performance Based Logistics (PBL) as a preferred approach for product support. The purpose of this Joint Applied Project (JAP) is to research and analyze four programs that have implemented PBL to determine what types of organizational designs are conducive to successful implementation, and apply those designs to a program at our command. We will identify organizational structures or characteristics of programs having successfully implemented PBL and then determine to what extent those characteristics are being used or should be used in the Standard Automotive Tool Set (SATS), an (Army) TACOM Rock Island managed program. Research will address current industry practices, Department of Defense policies and guidance, as well as an analysis of organization design on three programs using PBL for product support. Our final recommendation will address whether the characteristics or organizational structure of the SATS team should change to make PBL a successful product support strategy.
