Life-Cycle Sustainment Plan

The Life-Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP) is required by DoD Instruction 5000.02 and documents the Program Manager‘s (PM) and Product Support Manager's (PSM) plan for formulating, implementing and executing the sustainment strategy. The plan is included in the overall Acquisition Strategy of a program and describing the approach and resources necessary to develop and integrate sustainment requirements into the system‘s design, development, Testing & Evaluation, fielding and operations. It also details the development of a product support package (including any support contracts) and how they contribute to the Warfighter‘s mission requirements by achieving and maintaining the Sustainment Sustainment Key Performance Parameters (KPP) and Key System Attributes (KSA).

Draft Life Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP) Content Guide - 6 April 2010

The LCSP should address the following areas: [1]


The evolution of the LCSP is detailed below: [1]


The Program Manager (PM) and Product Support Manager's (PSM) are responsible for the content and preparation of the LCSP but should work with the user, the Product Support Manager, Product Support Integrator(s), and Product Support Providers to document performance and sustainment requirements specifying objective outcomes, resource commitments, and stakeholder responsibilities. [1]  

- Currently the DoD Components use different names to address this requirement, e.g., the Army's Supportability Strategy, the USAF's Life-Cycle Management Plan.
- An outline of the LCSP can be found in the DAG: Figure
