Logistics Materiel Readiness Directorate (LMRD)


User representative “Sustainment Face to the Field” – Supports all sustainment equities in combat system readiness. Supports Capability Developers, Training Developers, Materiel Developers and Testing for Army systems supportability, sustainability, maintainability, and maintenance training assessment. TRADOC lead for logistics product development and evaluation process, and lifecycle supportability.



The Directorate consists of three Divisions: Combat Arms, Missiles, and Mission Command Division; Combat Support and Sustainment Division; and the Sustainment Operations and Integration Division.



  • Supports capability, training, materiel developers and testing agencies in the system maintenance and training assessment and logistics product development processes.
  • Logistics user representative to materiel developer Product Support Management IPTs (PSMIPT). Provides direction to ensure materiel capabilities are supportable, sustainable, trainable and logistically ready for fielding.
  • Reviews and endorses Life Cycle Sustainment Plans (LCSP) for the material developer as the system sustainment user representative.
  • Provides input to system test and evaluation (T&E) plans. Supports systems logistics T&E and assessment events to include, but not limited to system maintainability and supportability assessments, technical manual validations and verifications, and maintainability evaluations. Coordinates with the Test Support and Resourcing Committee (TSARC) for subject matter expert (SME) T&E support.
  • Assess and evaluate post fielding system engineering change proposals (ECP) and modification work orders (MWO) to determine impacts to maintenance, training, and logistics supportability.
  • Provides direction for developing and implementing operator and field level maintenance training to support new or emerging systems.
  • Conducts verification of maintenance technical manuals and QM, OD, TC proponent operator technical manuals IAW AR 25-30.
  • Provides input and reviews the materiel developer’s contract strategies, statements of work, contract data requirements lists and related documents.
  • Identifies training equipment requirements and training aids, devices, simulations and simulators (TADSS) to support new or emerging systems for OD, QM and TC proponent resident training.
  • Review and evaluate proposed contractual actions, and engineering and software change proposals.
  • Monitor and/or participate in developmental and operational tests, software developmental, and acceptance test activities.
  • Evaluate the Training Test Support Package (TTSP), evaluate test player training, and prepare the Training Operational Test Readiness Statement (OTRS) authorizing a new system to enter operational testing.
  • Develop, coordinate and update the Logistics Systems Training Plan (STRAP). Coordinate with appropriate activities and schools to prepare/submit input to the STRAP, providing concepts, detail and utilization of the training support products. Represent training at the integrated product team meetings and conferences.
  • Participate in IPR and training conferences to review contractor-developed logistical support analysis records or their equivalent and training materials.
  • Provide input to Basis of Issue Plans (BOIP) Feeder Data IAW AR 71-32.
  • Review, comment and adjudicate JCIDS documents to ensure system logistics and sustainment training requirements are documented appropriate to the proposed capability.
  • Provide input to the materiel developer to prepare contracts for training support.
  • Provide input for the development and review of statements of work and requests for proposals for new systems.
  • Provide test training certification for proponent MOS, areas of concentration (AOC) and specialty skill identifiers (SSI).
  • Participate in Instructor and Key Personnel Training (IKPT) to ensure training integration for all sustainment and maintenance training.
  • User representative for training requirements and related documentation associated with the development of new or emerging systems and provides this input to the appropriate activities on a timely basis throughout the life cycle of the system development process.
  • Provides input to CASCOM Training Support Systems (TSS), ensuring the Training Aids, Devices, Simulations and Simulators (TADSS) are adequate to support new systems and training in all domains IAW AR 350-1.
  • Evaluate all new systems for adequate field level maintainer training support and TC, OD, QM and SSI new systems for adequate training support in preparation for Materiel Release IAW AR 700-142. Provide the Training Support Release in support of Material Release for these systems.
  • Coordinates with Army acquisition agencies, PEO’s, PM, and PD’s in the development of Integrated Product Support (IPS) policy and procedures and participates in scheduled Operational Sustainment Reviews (OSR).
  • Coordinate with AFC CDID’s for all fielded force equities, concepts, emerging requirements, and SPAR to ensure sustainability and supportability of new concepts, and capabilities throughout the Army are planned for and resourced.
  • Recommend DOTMLPF-P sustainment solutions across the Army that address the fielded force’s materiel readiness issues or concerns to ensure the Army can support the force in any future operating environment.
