16. Are current performance levels meeting customer requirements?
17. Are there indications of gaps in the current sustainment strategy?
18. How does asset performance affect its platform readiness?
19. Are performance levels of equipment subsystems and components not meeting their targets?
20. Has overall platform availability decreased to the point where the asset ceases to meet Warfighter requirements?
21. How are clearly defined Warfighter relevant outcomes acquired- not just sustainment services or replacement equipment?
22. Does use of measurable and practical metrics accurately assess product support provider performance against delivery of targeted Warfighter outcomes?
23. Are incentives provided to the support provider that are tied to achievement of outcomes for aspects of performance that are within their control?
24. Does sufficient contract length exist for the product support provider to recoup investments on improved product e.g. time between failure, sustainment processes and build capabilities?
25. Are performance-based logistics knowledge and resources maintained for sustainment team and product support providers?
