Abstract:

Efficient and effective product support development and implementation are not simple. Increasingly, more focus is being placed on how to deliver cost-wise and effective product support. In an environment of Better Buying Power -- greater efficiency and productivity in defense spending -- a need to better understand and implement product support that is performance outcome-based is not only prescribed, but prudent. PBL can provide desired performance-based product support. A 2005 study unearthed perceived PBL enablers and barriers. This article is a byproduct of 2011 research contrasting the 2005 studys PBL barriers and enablers. Through a survey of the acquisition workforce, data were collected on 15 PBL implementation factors. This article discusses current working perceptions that either encourage or impede PBL implementation.
