Integrated Logistics Support (ILS)
D & R is an experienced provider of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) services for both military and commercial customers. ILS is the process by which the support needs are identified and the appropriate analytical, management and planning tasks are executed to ensure the needs are addressed when the product is fielded. Ten individual but interdependent elements comprise the ILS discipline, and these are described below.
The analytical process that identifies how, when and what resources are required to maintain and restore the operational capability of the system / equipment.
- Maintenance Plans
- Maintenance Allocation Chart (MAC)
- Maintenance Task Analysis
- Level of Repair (LORA)
Supply Support (Provisioning)
The identification of the spares and repair parts needed for operation and maintenance. Spares analysis, interim support lists (ISILs) and full provisioning report (LSA-036) generation.
- Spares Determination
- Provisioning Parts List
- EDFP / SDFP
Manpower and Personnel
The identification of the type and number of people required to operate and maintain the system / equipment.
- Manpower Assessment
- Skill Identification
- Skill Assessment
Support and Test Equipment
The identification of the equipment needed to operate and maintain the system / equipment. Includes, tools, test and diagnostic equipment, and calibration.
- Support Equipment Identification
- Tool and Test Equipment Lists
The information needed to operate and maintain the system / equipment. Includes user, maintenance, repair, and illustrated parts breakdown manuals.
- Operator / Maintenance Manuals
- Parts Manuals
Training and Training Devices
Operation and maintenance training, both initial and sustaining, including training material and training equipment.
- Training Course Conduct
- Material Development
- Training Needs Analysis (TNA)
- Instructional Media Package
- Training Conduct Support Document
Computer Resources Support
The computer hardware, software, personnel and documentation required to support the system / equipment.
- HW & SW Requirements
- Software Manuals
The space, storage and environmental requirements and equipment needed to operate and maintain the system / equipment.
- Facilities Assessment
- Use Studies
Packaging, Handling, Storage, and Transportation
The shipment and storage of the system / equipment and its components.
- Special Packaging Instructions (SPIs)
- Transportability Analysis
Working with the design community to produce a more supportable system / equipment.
- Design Analysis
- RMA Analysis
Logistics Support Analyses
Logistics Support Analysis is another set of analyses and tasks that are conducted as part of the ILS effort. These tasks focus on various program and design details with a goal of optimizing the 10 aspects of the supportability infrastructure.
- Logistics Planning
- Cost Analysis
- Availability Analysis
- Reliability / Maintainability Analysis
- ILS Plans
- Life Cycle Cost Analysis
- Level of Repair Analysis
- Reliability Prediction
- Maintainability Prediction
- Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis
- Reliability Centered Maintenance
- NAVAIR 00-25-403 / MIL-HDBK-2173
Logistics Management Information
The results of the logistics and supportability analyses are captured in a single (common) source database, known as the Logistics Management Information (LMI), or LSA Record (LSAR) database. We have been capturing logistics data using various software tools and are knowledgeable of legacy and current logistics database standards for collection and reporting requirements.
- MIL-STD-1388-2B LSAR
- MIL-PRF-49506 LMI
In addition, we are well versed with commercial systems such as SLIC, OMEGA and LEADS, as well as newer programs such as POWERLOG-J. These systems are used to generate the reports that are provided to meet CDRL requirements. A sampling of those reports would include:
- LSA-004 Maintenance Allocation Chart
- LSA-024 Maintenance Plans
- LSA-036 Provisioning Parts Lists / DCNs
- LSA-070 SERD
