Logistics and Sustainment Enterprise 2040 LSE 2040 represents both a multi-decennial vision and a management and execution strategy in the pursuit of vastly improved logistics and sustainment enterprise LSE operations. LSE 2040 provides a LSE infrastructure modernization plan that addresses needs and gaps at an enterprise level. The LSE 2040 vision serves as the north star for guiding leadership prioritization of game-changing LSE improvements in 5-year increments through 2045. To date, a list of nine LSE 2040 attributes have been developed that serve as guideposts to break the LSE environment down into manageable pieces to fully transform the Air Force Sustainment Centers AFSC people, processes, resources, and capabilities. LSE 2040 addresses many of the recommendations in the United States Scientific Advisory Board report, dated 1 August 2011, on Sustaining Air Force Aging Aircraft into the 21st Century and in the National Research Councils 2011 report, Examination of the U.S. Air Forces Aircraft Sustainment Needs in the Future and Its Strategy to Meet Those Needs. The LSE 2040 management and execution strategy relies upon the incremental identification of technology gaps, needs, and constraints. In response, the attribute owners will deploy improved re-engineered processes, continuous process improvement CPI, training, and new technologies. A roadmap for each LSE 2040 attribute will be developed separately and utilize the 30-year LSE 2040 vision as a foundation. The roadmaps break down the 30-year time horizon into incremental 5-year phases with specific tactical programs that will provide tangible benefits, improvements, and return on investments ROIs to the LSE. LSE 2040 stems from AFSCs Art of the Possible AOP vision ensuring that appropriate investments are made today, paying it forward, so that the needed technologies, training, and processes are mature and incorporated into programmed depot maintenance PDM and LSE processes to achieve AOP.
