Abstract : If logistics concepts are to maintain pace with the constantly changing hardware and software spheres, innovative state of the art logistics acquisition strategies must be conceived defined, and implemented. Logistic acquisition concepts in the past have served well those devices for whose support they were designed. They cannot, however, meet the challenges occasioned by rising costs, the increasing demand for more reliable life cycle support, and ever more sophisticated training device systems. These challenges, as well as others, can best be met by developing a best value, performance based, functionally oriented logistics acquisition strategy. Such an evolution will focus attention on the product, not the process, of the logistics support acquisition effort. Logistics must advance from emphasis on the acquisition process to concentration on acquiring logistics products which will provide reliable cycle support to training device system.
