Lunch & Learn "Manufacturing Readiness Assessments"
12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (EDT), 11:30 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (CDT)

In 2012, the GAO reported that the “DoD faces problems in manufacturing weapon systems—systems cost far more and take much longer to build than estimated”... and that…“essentially, programs did not identify and resolve manufacturing risks early in development.” Learn about how you can use Manufacturing Readiness Assessments (MRAs) to identify manufacturing risks and maturation strategies throughout the acquisition life cycle in this informative synopsis on the basics of MRAs and where to discover additional information and help in completing these essential assessments.

provide insights to emerging Foreign Military Sales (FMS) demand.

Keynote and featured speakers from the Congress, the Combatant Commands, OSD, the Joint Staff, the Services, Industry and International Community will define topics related to program enhancements designed for the global Joint Force. Several crucial areas and
challenges will be highlighted during this two-day critical review.

PSAR-17 WILL SHOWCASE:

  • Congressional Perspective on Precision Munitions Capability and Challenges
  • National Military Strategy
  • Third Offset Strategy Vision and Challenges

Lunch & Learn "Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs"

12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (ET)

This topic will highlight the Navy's web-enabled management information system called Visibility and Management of Operating & Support Costs (VAMOSC). The VAMOSC system collects and reports historical Navy and Marine Corps operating and support costs valued at $98B annually. VAMOSC collects and reports on weapon system specific costs, including DON personnel, approximately 130 financial and non-financial data sources; over 1,200 O&S cost and non-cost elements for weapons systems. It also reports on direct and linked indirect costs in "Then Year" and "Constant Year" dollars. This session will provide an overview of the information available for cost estimating purposes and the system capabilities of VAMOSC.

Lunch & Learn "Should Cost Management"

12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (ET)

One of the most powerful of the Better Buying Power (BBP) initiatives is the use of “should cost” management, and it applies to programs in all Acquisition Categories (ACAT), in all phases of the product’s life cycle, and to all elements of program cost. Proactively controlling cost is everyone’s business. This Lunch & Learn session will provide a brief overview of what should cost is and then highlight some of the processes and tools that can be used to identify and evaluate should cost initiatives, develop should cost plans, and create a culture of ongoing should cost management.

The AF formed a first of its kind Acquisition Incident Review Team to generate IT lessons learned to be shared with the acquisition community. This L&L will explore those lessons learned and tie them back to root causes for program failure.
