Objective

The objective of the PHS&T IPS Element is to identify, plan, resource, and acquire packaging/preservation, handling, storage and transportation (PHST) requirements to maximize availability and usability of the materiel to include support items whenever they are needed for training or mission. (Source: DoD Product Support Manager (PSM) Guidebook, Appendix A)

Description

The combination of resources, processes, procedures, design, considerations, and methods to ensure that all system, equipment, and support items are preserved, packaged, handled, and transported properly, including environmental considerations, equipment preservation for the short and long storage, and transportability. Some items require special environmentally controlled, shock isolated containers for transport to and from repair and storage facilities via all modes of transportation (land, rail, air, and sea).

Key Packaging, Handling, Storage & Transportation (PHS&T) IPS Element activities according to Appendix A of the DoD Product Support Manager (PSM) Guidebook and the DoD Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element Guidebook, include:

  • Short and long term preservation
  • Packaging requirements determination
  • Containerization requirements determination
  • Shelf life requirements determination
  • Handling requirements determination
  • Transportation requirements determination
  • Environmental control requirements determination
  • Physical shock control requirements determination
  • Static shock control requirements determination
  • Security classification requirements determination
  • Container Reutilization
  • Marking
  • Distribution, Transportation & Distribution Process Owner (DPO)
  • Transportation Efficiencies
  • Pure Pallet Initiative
