The Defense Acquisition University has launched its "Product Support Management Toolkit."

The new tool aims to help DoD acquisition managers implement product-support strategies to improve lifecycle costs and weapon-system readiness.

The toolkit is available on the DAU's Acquisition Community Connection, which serves as a common web portal for DoD's acquisition workforce.

Bill Kobren, the director of the Logistics and Sustainment Center at DAU, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss how it will help DoD's acquisition community.
