  3. 3. 3Register online at www.defencelogisticsuae.com or call us at +971 4 364 2975 5 Key Benefits of Attending the Best Practice Through Life Focus Day: 1 Learn how to ensure that the use of facilities, services, tools, spares and manpower are optimised to maximise product availability 2 Develop strategies and systems to optimise resources whilst minimising whole life costs 3 Innovative approaches that encourages the use of standard and shared resources where appropriate 4 Building the necessary support infrastructure for each product 5 Developing a detailed maintenance plan that determines probable repair tasks and identifies the right resources to achieve reliability and maintainability Rationale: Extensive research has shown that the cost of acquiring modern military equipment is small compared to the whole life cost of supporting and maintaining these critical assets.These costs are not only felt in financial terms but also extend to the manpower and skill base requirements that are necessary to support them. Ensuring that these assets are cost effectively maintained and ready for operational deployment is not only critical for future mission success but it will also have a huge impact on the overall cost of ownership.This is why it is so important for you to invest more in the development, production and management of all newly procured equipment. If you can refine your processes and adopt best practice now, then you can start to save millions from your department's overall budget. The Best Practice Through Life Management focus day will bring you case studies that demonstrate how to wisely invest throughout the full life of modern military equipment. Each presentation will examine different stages of equipment cycles from acquisition and procurement through to implementation and maintenance.
