Abstract : Post Production Support (PPS), the process of ensuring weapon system logistics supportability after cessation of production, is mandated through Department of Defense (DoD) Directives and Instructions as well as Air Force (AF) Regulations. At present, no standard approach exists to develop and implement a PPS program. This paper uses four steps to analyze the Peacekeeper PPS Program's potential for standardization among future AF weapon systems. First, to establish the requirement to conduct PPS programs, pertinent DoD and AF guidance is reviewed. Next, parameters are selected for use in identifying other weapon systems' PPS program for review and analysis. Here, the selected weapon systems are reviewed for program content, adherence to published guidance, and lessons learned. The third step encompasses a review of the Peacekeeper PPS Program. Finally, based upon the above, the author assesses the potential of the Peacekeeper PPS Program as a model for standardization.
