Scandinavian Summer School Week is an annual event that was initiated in 1999 as an innovative way of providing an intense competence development experience. The week serves two major purposes:
- to teach the principles of how to develop and manage effective systems and;
- to support networking between practitioners.
This is a unique week of intense learning, networking and inspiration to prepare you for future challenges in defining, designing and managing systems throughout their lifetime.
Summer School combines theory and practice as well as hard work and social activities in an inspiring environment. Together with participants from many industrial sectors you will be taught and guided by internationally recognized lecturers.

About the course
The Summer School on Logistics Engineering and Management provides insight into the through life management of systems from inception to retirement. It covers Logistics Engineering methods and tools and how supportability is addressed, analyzed and measured as a part of the Systems Engineering process. The management methodology covers aspects such as managing, contracting, planning and methods.
The course focuses on the objectives of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) and in particular the influence and optimization of system design from a support perspective. It also includes the relationships with other project disciplines and an insight into factors/issues that increasingly impact modern day procurements, such as the use of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) technology, Obsolescence and Software Support.
International standards and initiatives such as UK Def Stan 00-60 and PLCS (Product Life Cycle Support) are discussed and evaluated. The relationship between acquirer and supplier is a central theme throughout the course. The course contains both theoretical and practical elements and ends with a simulated ILS Guidance Conference.
Anyone involved in acquisition projects and programmes, both from a supply or customer perspective, who require an overview of Support Solution Development in a Through Life context. Particularly those involved in individual ILS/Support disciplines looking to take on a management role or requiring a better understanding of their role within the overall Through Life Support Solution Environment.
A basic understanding of the English Language and some knowledge of system design and support issues within your own organization.
The goal with the course
The aim of the course is to give a fundamental overview of logistics management and engineering in an acquisition management context with particular emphasis on the life-cycle /through life approach to Support Solution Development and implementation.
