Integrated Product Support Procedures
|Publication Date:||28 September 2016|
This pamphlet supports the Army's implementation of performance-based life cycle product support, including performance-based logistics, and provides implementing guidance for planning, developing, acquiring and sustaining well-defined performance-based product support strategies (PBPSS) that meet the Soldier's requirements for Army materiel and software throughout its life cycle. Army Regulation (AR) 700-127 provides policies and requirements for integrated product support (IPS). This pamphlet should be used in conjunction with AR 700-127 to ensure consistent application of Army policy when developing and implementing a PBPSS for materiel and software. This pamphlet guides implementation of PBPSS requirements; describes the process that the materiel developer (MATDEV) will use to develop and integrate a PBPSS consistent with the system engineering process; identifies the framework (12 IPS elements) used to develop the PBPSS; describes the product support manager's (PSM) role and relationships with stakeholders in developing and executing the PBPSS; defines metrics to measure the product support system performance; and stresses the importance of ensuring that contract requirements are accurately identified and included in solicitations and contracts.
