INTEGRATED LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT
|Publication Date:||10 July 2014|
Purpose and Applicability of AFPAM 63-128.
The intent of this pamphlet is to provide a single source for descriptive, vice directive, guidance. It expands upon the directive requirements in AFI 63-101/20-101; it is not meant to be used as directive guidance but instead conveys expectations, best practices, lessons learned and other descriptive information to help a program manager (PM) initiate and expedite the development and delivery of systems. The AFPAM also helps define the interrelationships between the PM and other functional areas throughout the life cycle. All members of the acquisition and sustainment community should use this guidance in partnership with higher level guidance previously cited, other AFPAMs, the Defense Acquisition Guidebook, and the Acquisition Sustainment Took Kit (ASTK) to guide the PM on the right path to program success. The terms "weapon" and "weapon system" are used in this document to represent all systems managed through Integrated Life Cycle Management; likewise the term "warfight" represents all users these systems.
