Performance-Based Logistics PBL is a mechanism to integrate the acquisition and sustainment of various systems in the Department of Defense. In this article, we report the results of a research study aimed at developing a working definition of PBL, the drivers for its use, and the infrastructure changes needed for its successful deployment. Utilizing our research findings and those of previous related studies, we suggest guidelines for successfully implementing PBL in organizations. We conclude the article by suggesting some useful directions for future research to fully realize the benefits of PBL.
