Decision makers attending this program will obtain a thorough understanding of Life Cycle Management (LCM) in general and the analytical element in particular.
Based on a solid framework, objectives and key concepts of LCM are introduced. Furthermore,
the role and scope of related disciplines will be
explained. A broad spectrum of analyses covering
various phases of the system/product life cycle will be illustrated interchangeably by example or as exercises.
When and where?

"SUCCESSFUL LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT (LCM) relies on the capability to continually, adequately and effectively address strategic decisions. A key element of such capability is analytical power – sophisticated analyses assisting the decision maker to reach the objectives of LCM: maximum operational effectiveness at minimum cost."

“The LCM training performed by Systecon has been a great experience. Not only was this massive topic presented in a very professional manner, but the real examples displayed have also been on the edge of current best-practices and state-of-the-art process descriptions. The presentation by the trainer has expanded our logistic view and motivates me to further develop some of the Life Cycle Management initiatives discussed.”
