Abstract : When more than one military service is involved in the development, acquisition, and support of a new weapon system, there is inherent complexity reflected throughout program management. This complexity often leads to unique management problems that are more pronounced than those encountered in single-service acquisitions. This study identifies and discusses these problems and provides techniques, procedures, and guidance for Air Force multiservice Deputy Program Managers for Logistics (DPMLs) to more effectively and efficiently address the problems. The study serves as a reference source for multiservice DPML management and is useful for joint or multiservice acquisition logistics education and training.
