Abstract:The world is changing. The climate, the world economy and even threats to the society are shifting the last decade or so. Evolving technology are integrating more and more in every day live. The same goes for the Armed Forces, no more traditional warfare but the use of sophisticated technology. The current economy and the everlasting improvement of military technology pushes governments to re-adjust their spending’s. Espe-cially the logistics of the DoD has to be more efficient, more effective and overall have lower costs of sustain-ment of their equipment. Performance Based Logistics is intended to do all that. It is all about wanting the maximum and predictable use of an asset at a predictable, affordable and preferably lowest price. The basic principle is that the customer does not pay for a broken asset but only pays for a working asset; pay for usage. Implementation of Performance Based Logistics comes with a shift of information flow. To be able to sustain equipment, there is an information requirement about the equipment. This thesis proposes an analysis meth-od that is intended to analyze Performance Based Logistics contracts for the availability of information re-quired to conduct Performance Based Logistics. This analysis identifies shortfalls in information requirements, resulting in potential items that have to be resolved during contract negotiations. The analysis model is vali-dated by means of use case scenarios for a land-based sensor.
