The first two ebook in my series, Fundamentals of Complex System Sustainment, are shown in the graphic above. The fourth will be “A History of Sustainment”.
It traces the need for the complex system sustainment management model by taking a look at how man-made systems came about, and have become more complex and longer-lived over time.
Why did systems arise? Why were the most complex systems first found in the military? What changes in the 1700’s, 1800’s, and 1900’s were key to this evolution?
If you can’t wait for its release in March, take a look at my paper with Justin Kugler, SPACE 2017 History Vono August 2017, where we not only trace the outline of these events, but extend it with a prediction for commercial space in low earth orbit in the year 2060.
Or take a look at the presentation I made last February at the INCOSE Wasatch Chapter, History of Sustainment.
The third in the series is “Affordable Assessment” and will be out soon. You can find my ebooks on amazon by searching with the keywords “charles vono”.
