About the Presentation:
Properly implemented logistics elements enable a primary system (say an aircraft or a wind turbine) to perform its mission successfully.  Simply put, if there is no fuel on hand, then there is no flying!  The idea of a Holistic System perspective considers integrated logistics support from the start.  This presentation brings to life, through examples, how each of the 10 elements of logistics and sustainment influence primary system design.
