What is DI/MP Training?

This course is comprised of eight units, beginning with an overview to provide a clear understanding of the learning expectations for each unit. The first unit introduces participants to the concept of DI/MP integration within a systems engineering IPT environment. The next five units provide instruction on the sequential phases of the DoD 5000 Model, addressing the processes and tools required to perform the tasks associated with each acquisition phase. During the seventh unit, trainees receive a high-level overview of the Logistics Management Information (LMI) System as it relates to their responsibilities as a DI/MP logistician. The last unit will summarize and review course content and provide participants with the opportunity to work in their pre-assigned groups to “teach back” one of the units.

The Goal

Gain the instruction and practice to apply lifecycle management processes to acquired systems, equipment, and high-value physical assets. This introductory course provides training designed to provide an in-depth understanding of DI/MP disciplines as they relate to the five phases of Defense Acquisition Management System (DoDI 5000 Model). It is approved by and meets NAVAIR DI/MP certification requirements. As an introductory course, there are no prerequisite requirements to attend.

SAE JA 1011

(Society of Automotive Engineers)

The technical standard: Evaluation Criteria for RCM Processes which outlines the criteria for an RCM process by isolating 7 questions in order:

  1. What is the asset supposed to do and what are its associated performance standards?
  2. In what ways can it fail to provide the required functions?
  3. What are the events that cause each failure?
  4. What’s the consequence when each failure occurs?
  5. In what way does each failure matter?
  6. What systematic task can be performed proactively to prevent, or to diminish to a satisfactory degree, the consequences of the failure?
  7. What must be done if a suitable preventive task cannot be found?

Identifying and capturing the Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) determines key throughput points and levels of criticality are assigned. Identifying tolerance is an important component. Then the RCM logic determines appropriate maintenance schedules to maximize process and plant efficiency.

The outcome is a systemic maintenance program that prioritizes up-time and efficiency at the lowest cost.

What You Will Learn:

  • Predictive maintenance cycles and equipment failure curves
  • Identifying operating risk
  • Failure modes, effects, and criticality analysis
  • Run-to-failure strategies
  • Equipment criticality analysis
  • Parts failure initiation
  • Equipment redesign methods
  • Time-based maintenance vs. on-condition maintenance

What You Will Gain

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Describe DI/MP integration within a systems engineering, integrated product team (IPT) environment
  • Explain the Logistics Management Information (LMI) System development and delivery process
  • Apply critical DI/MP processes throughout the phases of Acquisition and Sustainment

Benefits of DI/MP Training

This course is designed for:

  • Logisticians & Engineers, from novices to experienced professionals
  • Maintenance Planners, Managers and Technicians
  • Military, Municipal & Commercial Sectors

Course Design

Delivered over a one-week period for up to 40 hours, instructional strategies introduce concepts, reinforce learning, engage participants in the learning process and include:

  • Training Materials (included in cost)
  • Lecture, supported by on-screen presentations
  • Demonstration
  • Large Group Discussion
  • Case Study Analysis
  • Capstone Practice Exercises

Capstone Practice

Exercises These exercises will be delivered in two parts:

  • Part 1: Knowledge assessment of content presented in Units 1 through 3.
  • Part 2: Knowledge assessment of content presented in Units 4 through 6.

Both exercises will be performed in pre-assigned collaborative groups. The entire group will be scored for each exercise and scores are cumulative. Each group will remain the same for both exercises. Successful completion of both Capstone Exercises is required to pass this course at a minimum of 70 percent accuracy per group.
