TD-Info Office, Briarlands Office Park Gloucester Road, Rudgeway, BS35 3QH

Book via this website - go to Calendar

About Session This valuable opportunity for Industry is a briefing on the Logistics Development Agenda (LDA), presented by Dr Darrell Jaya-Ratnam (DIEManalytics Ltd) with support from Steve Green (FloGroup Ltd). The session will explain the concepts underlying their analysis for the MOD Conceptual Force Development (CFD) team, led by Ed Corrigan, into future defence logistics capability requirements, that ultimately feed into the next SDSR. Indeed, these same presenters will be with the CFD team at Abbey Wood later in the day, covering the same content which includes an overview of the concepts and associated technologies - see associated flyer for a relevant diagram. Linked to the briefing is opportunity for discussion and input based on Industry’s experience and perspectives.

Who Should Attend?
This session is suitable for those with an interest in future defence logistics. Initial circulation will be to groups that include the Defence & Industry Support Chain Optimisation Group (DISCOG) and those that have been involved with submission of Project Initiation Documents (PIDS) in the Defence Support Network (Transformation) Programme [DSN(T)]. However, we are open to this information being forwarded to colleagues. Members of the DISCOG who attended the meeting on 13 December, will recall that Ed Corrigan set the context and outlined challenges and future opportunities facing defence logistics.
