On the other hand, Ive also read the articles, perused the Government Accountability Office reports, and seen the briefs denigrating PBL for a whole host of reasons, of which one of the most commonly cited is the lack of funding flexibility. What confuses me is that if PBL really isnt the answer, then why cant I find an article anywhere that suggests any alternative to PBLwith the exception of maintenance of the transactional status quo, which is an alternative that is no longer affordable as evidenced by years of data on operations and support cost escalation and poor performance My confusion is generated by the thought that if the U.S. government can apply PBL to weapons system sustainmentcovering depot repairs, sustaining engineering, reliability growth, configuration management, diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages mitigation, wholesale inventory management, and even gain sharing, to name just a few of the possible optionsfor the same price or less than that they are already paying for annual repair transactions for the same subsystem, why would the government, or anyone else, not be a strong advocate for PBL
