Engineering Support Transformation User Forum

The Engineering Support Transformation User Forum (E-STUF) is a community formed in August 2018. It meets quarterly to share best practice in Engineering Support across As-Designed & As-Built to As-Used & As-Maintained. Its task-focused engagements will provide a means for Industry to engage with the Defence Support Network Engineering Support Transformation (DSN ES Tx) and the MOD equivalent Group Engineering Support User Group (ESUG). The outcomes of the E-STUF forum will support the development, implementation and realisation of the DSN ES Vision.

NB: the ‘E’ in E-STUF is both for ‘Engineering’ and the digital enablement aspects of this work and the information stream that is fundamental to all 4 tenets of the vision paper.

The Engineering Support (Transformation) – ES (Tx) – Discovery Phase ran from August 2018 to February 2019 to develop: The ‘As-Is’ Engineering Support capability Roadmap to realise the vision, Gap analysis and Implementation Programme Plan for DSN(T) endorsement.
