Integrated Logistic Support

Integrated Logistic Support Management (ILSM)

Lifting gearEffective Integrated Logistic Support Management is the most critical element of a successful Through Life Support Solution (TLSS). Decisive, accurate and timely management will ensure through life costs are minimised whilst operational performance is underpinned by a suitable, tailored support solution. Our team can provide expert advice, guidance and management on:

  • ILS planning
  • Management of ILS Programmes
  • Production of Contractor Data Requirement List (CDRL)
  • Development and implementation of ILS rectification plans
  • Costing of ILS elements
  • Production of ILS Statement Of Work (SOW)
  • Input to bid documentation
  • Tender Assessment
  • Management of ILS activities
  • Chairing/participating in Logistic Support Committees (LSC)
  • Life Cycle Cost (LCC) trade off analysis
  • Whole Life Cost (WLC) modelling

Logistic Support Analysis (LSA)

LSA is tailored in accordance with the maturity of the system. LSA provides a cornerstone for the Integrated Logistic Support elements by generating data in order to develop maintenance policy and concepts. The source data will cover the spectrum of ILS elements and is essential in the development of maintenance plans, tooling schedules, training and supply support activities.

Our team of consultants and engineers can:

  • Develop, manage and produce Logistic Support Analysis Plans
  • Management and production of LSA activities
  • Production, analysis and interpretation of ‘Use Study’
  • Ease of Maintenance Analysis / Studies
  • Supportability Analysis
  • Maintenance Task Analysis
  • Logistics Demonstrations
  • Logistic Support Analysis Record management and population

Availability, Reliability and Maintainability

Our team can provide support in the areas:

  • ARM planning
  • Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
  • Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM)
  • Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action System (FRACAS)
  • Mean Active Corrective Maintenance Time (MACMT)
  • Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)
  • Mean Time To Repair (MTTR)
  • Maintainability and Reliability Demonstration Planning

Maintenance Planning

Maintenance planning begins early in the acquisition process with development of the maintenance concept. It is conducted to evolve and establish requirements and tasks to be accomplished for achieving, restoring, and maintaining the operational capability for the life of the system. The maintenance concept must ensure prudent use of manpower and resources. When formulating the maintenance concept, analysis of the proposed work environment on the health and safety of maintenance personnel must be considered.

Our team of engineers can conduct all aspects of maintenance planning in order for the most efficient concept to be developed. Our team can provide:

  • LCC modelling to determine most cost effective maintenance concept
  • LORA
  • Assessment of readiness levels
  • Development of maintenance policy
  • Production of Equipment Support Policy Document (ESPD)

Manpower and Personnel

Our team consists of engineers from a plethora of backgrounds and we are familiar with working with different organisation including the military. We can clearly identify the manpower and personnel requirements and skills necessary for the use and maintenance of new to service or existing equipment.

Supply Support

Supply support is the most critical and complex of ILS elements. Supply support modelling rarely reflects actual spares usage. Our team have frontline experience of maintaining equipment. They are well versed in all supply support matters and can offer assistance in all Ranging and Scaling activities. Our team can support you in:

  • Chairing, participation in Supply Support Working Groups (SSWG)
  • Supply Support planning
  • Contractor Logistic Support (CLS)
  • Codification
  • Package, Handling, Storage and Transportation (PHS&T)
  • Ranging and Scaling (R&S)
  • Spares optimisation
  • Delivery
  • Receipt
  • 640 and 650 management
  • Initial spares provisioning
  • Input to tender documents

Support and Test Equipment

Our engineers have the skills and experience to identify the necessary special tools and test equipment required to support equipment. Where possible our engineers propose tools and test equipment that are already in use by our customers. Where this is not possible tools that are commercially available will be proposed. Exceptionally, where required, a special tool may have to be designed, developed, tested and procured. Our team can assist in all aspects of this process.

Training and Training Devices

Our team can assist in all aspects of developing a training solution that is fit for purpose. We specialise in providing onsite training courses, regardless of the facilities available or environment.

Technical Documentation

Our technical experts have over 25 years of using, management and producing technical documentation. Our team can carry out ‘on object’ confirmation of documentation. This ensures that the end product meets the customer’s expectation and costly rewrites are avoided. Our team can provide:

  • Technical evaluation of current technical documentation
  • Verification and validation of new to service technical documentation
  • Technical Documentation planning
  • Management of Technical Documentation Programmes
  • Production of Technical Documentation

Packaging, Handling, Storage and Transportability

Our team can advise, plan and assist on all aspects of PHS&T including:

  • Hazardous material
  • Maintenance of stock
  • Lifed items
  • Before issue requirements

Facilities

Our engineers can identify the required facilities to support the equipment. A full facility requirement analysis will be undertaken during the functional and physical supportability analysis phases.

Human Factors Integration (HFI)

Our engineers are experienced in the practical aspects of Human Factors Integration. The can assist on:

  • Assessment, reporting and monitoring of HFI issues
  • HFI planning and policy
  • Management and conduct of HFI trials
