LT2 And The General Dynamics CPM Solution Has Saved The Army More Than $570 Million In Training Related Costs.
ORLANDO, Fla. – December 1, 2014 – The U.S. Army’s Live Training Transformation (LT2) product line, managed by General Dynamics C4 Systems, is the 2014 inductee into the Software Product Line Hall of Fame. Sponsored by the Software Product Line Conference, the Hall of Fame honor recognizes General Dynamics’ management of LT2 as a best of the best’ model for the software product line industry.
In 2009, General Dynamics received the Consolidated Product-Line Management (CPM) contract from the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), Project Manager for Training Devices, to consolidate the management of the Army’s LT2 product line. The scope of the LT2 live training systems include more than 150 training ranges worldwide, with training that scales from individual soldiers up to and including full brigades participating in live force-on-force and force-on-target training. To date, LT2 and the General Dynamics’ CPM solution, working with experts in the fields of product line engineering and live training development, has delivered more than $570 million in cost savings to the Army.
“In a budget-constrained environment, the collaboration among the Army, General Dynamics and our program teammates is achieving significant cost savings and efficiency in what is likely one of the most important investments that the Army makes, training soldiers to be mission-ready, anytime, everywhere,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
In addition to this year’s award, the LT2 program received the U.S. Department of Defense Value Engineering Award in 2013. In 2012, the program won the Association for Enterprise Information Excellence in Enterprise Information Award and the U.S. Army’s Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (ASA) for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ALT) Acquisition Excellence Award.
