Got a good idea on the subject of Sustainment?
Let me help you get in touch with Paul White who is leading our efforts to hold a sustainment conference next Fall. Or email him yourself at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), US Western Region’s Conference in Salt Lake City on 20, 21, and 22 September 2018. See flyer here: UhR7cl-wsrcteaserflyer2018
The theme is “Systems Engineering Out WEST” It will feature papers and presentations on Workplace, Environment, Sustainment, and Technology. The event will be held at the rustic Orbital ATK Conference Center located in the stunningly beautiful Ogden Canyon, just minutes from Hill AFB.
We hope to attract interest from the folks at Hill AFB who work in the USAF’s Sustainment Center. But we also want folks from all over the West and from civilian systems. If you have followed my posts for a little while, you may recall the great success I had at the INCOSE Great Lakes Conference (click here for my post) speaking to systems engineers from companies like TRANE, John Deere, and industries like medical and sports munitions. They all seemed to resonate to my definition of sustainment: “Support of the system to ensure continued mission capability”. And they were very interested in my short tutorial on the complex systems sustainment management model.
So if you are interested in the topic of sustainment (or workplace or environment or tech), be sure to consider attending, whether you live in the Western Region or anywhere around the globe.
