History of the JM&L LCMC

In August 2004, The Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology and the Commander, U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC), agreed to formalize the Army's Life Cycle Management initiative in order to get products to the Soldier faster, make good products better and minimize life cycle cost. The key to this Life Cycle Management initiative was the integration of significant elements of acquisition, logistics and technology leadership to bring a closer relationship between AMC, the Major Subordinate Commands (MSC) and the Program Executive Officers (PEO).  This collaboration was enabled by the establishment of Life Cycle Management Commands (LCMC), aligning AMC system oriented MSCs with the PEOs they already supported. The Aviation and Missile LCMC, Communications-Electronics LCMC and TACOM LCMC are operational; marking the stand-up of the Joint Munitions & Lethality (JM&L) LCMC.  The JM&L LCMC is drawn from the "Ammunition Enterprise" of the PEO Ammunition, the Joint Munitions Command and the Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, and will integrate the people, organizations, infrastructure, and processes necessary for the effective life cycle management of conventional munitions for the Warfighter. The overarching objective of the JM&L LCMC is to have the best munitions in the right place, at the right time, at the right cost.
