Life Cycle Logistics Career Field Recommended Reading List

We are periodically asked whether we provide a “recommended reading list” of books that product support managers (PSM) and other life cycle logistics professionals might want to consider reading or having as important references on their bookshelf. The answer is yes! This list was most recently updated on December 1, 2017.

Intended to assist logistics professionals and product support managers interested in broadening their professional knowledge and expertise, this recommended reading list is organized into six top-level categories consisting of:

  • Logistics Engineering & Designing for Supportability
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Business Case Analysis
  • Continuous Product & Process Improvement
  • Organizational Excellence, Customer Focus & Strategic Transformation
  • Leadership and Management

The currently featured book is entitled "Creech Blue: Gen Bill Creech and the Reformation of the Tactical Air Forces, 1978-1984". Published by Air University Press and available free of charge on the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) website, it is a powerful study in transformational leadership and organizational excellence.

Many of these books are available through the DAU Online Library & Research site if you don’t already have your own reference copy. In addition, DAU also maintains several related resources, including:
