Unformatted text preview: to the Systems Engineering Process Analysis Record (LSAR) data tables, which formally document the baselined ILS system. (See Section 6.5.3.) Problem/Failure Reports (P/ FRs). The maintainability engineer uses the Problem/Failure Reporting System (or an approved equivalent) to report maintainability problems and nonconformances encountered during qualification and acceptance testing (Phase D) and operations (Phase E). 6.5 Integrated Logistics Support The objective of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) activities within the systems engineering process is to ensure that the product system is supported during development (Phase D) and operations (Phase E) in a cost-effective manner. This is primarily accomplished by early, concurrent consideration of supportability characteristics, performing trade studies on alternative system and ILS concepts, quantifying resource requirements for each ILS element using best-practice techniques, and acquiring the support items associated with each ILS element. During operations, ILS activities support the system while seeking improvements in its cost-effectiveness by conducting analyses in response to actual operational conditions. These analyses continually reshape the ILS system and its resources requirements. Neglecting ILS or poor ILS decisions invariably have adverse effects on the life-cycle cost of the resultant system. 6.5.1 ILS Elements According to NHB 7120.5, the scope of ILS includes the following nine elements: • • • • Maintenance: the process of planning and executing life-cycle repair/services concepts and requirements necessary to ensure sustained operation of the system Design Interface: the interaction and relationship of logistics with the systems engineering process to ensure that supportability influences the definition and design of the system so as to reduce life-cycle cost Technical Data: the recorded scientific, engineering, technical, and cost information used to define, produce, test, evaluate, modify, deliver, support, and operate the system Training: the processes, procedures, devices, and equipment required to train personnel t...
