Integrated Logistics Support

Our full range of Integrated Logistics Support services.

Integrated logistics in all stages of the acquisition cycle, including support requirements is one of our core areas of expertise. At LSA we understand the inter importance of the “integrated” aspect of these elements.

With experience in both commercial and military systems, our instinctive understanding of poor support planning comes from being past operations and fleet managers who have experienced inadequate support infrastructure established by others after it’s too late. This means we are fully aware of how difficult it is for you to implement change after your equipment has been commissioned into service. Our emphasis, therefore, is on the imperative of getting it right the first time, and early.

Take advantage of our reliable, practical and professional ILS services to value add to your next project. Ensure the right support infrastructure is established at the outset and avoid costly and unnecessary remediation work later.

Integrated Logistics Support Services

By applying a common sense ILS approach to your acquisition project, your equipment and support system design will be influenced at the earliest opportunity, to help you achieve the following benefits:

  • Minimisation of support requirements and costs
  • All support elements are acquired in coordination with the introduction of the new equipment
  • All support elements are verified and validated before the equipment is introduced into service or commissioned
  • Support infrastructure elements are optimally related to equipment design and to each other
  • Effective procedures and processes are developed to provide the support infrastructure
  • Equipment availability requirements are achievable and sustainable through life
  • Users and support staff are effective in operating and maintaining the equipment
  • Disposal activities can be done cost effectively, and there are ‘no surprises’ when the time comes.

Our ILS activities are underpinned by supportability analysis, using recognised commercial and military standards. Analysis is based on the inter-relationship between the above elements of ILS and the effectiveness of your system in terms of its availability, reliability and design adequacy. Optimal support of your equipment is achievable through activities such as:

  • Operational and Support concept development
  • Logistic Support Analysis
  • Level of Repair Analysis
  • Reliability Centred Maintenance
  • Repair/discard analysis
  • Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis
  • Life Cycle Cost and cost estimating analysis and modelling
  • Spares Optimisation
  • Maintenance evaluations and maintenance task analysis
  • Support validation
  • Reliability, Availability and Maintainability modelling
  • Configuration Management
