Integrated Logistic Support
Pearson Engineering is a full spectrum top tier prime contractor able to provide the full range of Integrated Logistic Support Services. Pearson Engineering routinely participates in Programs of Record and is familiar with formal support arrangements including full spectrum Supportability Management and ILS.
The aim of ILS is to ensure equipment designers consider all the support domains at the outset. Early consideration allows a support framework within which support and life cycle costs can be monitored and optimised.
To ensure a successful ILS programme, Pearson Engineering adopts a flexible and disciplined approach to the tailoring and application of ILS requirements on a project-by-project basis. Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) is the principal tool of ILS. It is the primary means by which the objectives of ILS are achieved and comprises a series of structured analytical tasks aimed at developing the optimum support by:
- Identifying support planning and management requirements for a system/equipment project;
- Defining the support requirements for a system/equipment, identifying major cost drivers and risks;
- Developing alternative support solutions and determining the optimum solution through the use of trade-off analysis;
- Identifying the required resources to implement the chosen support solution;
- Validating the support solution adopted, once the system/equipment enters service.
The result of the analyses are recorded within a Logistic Support Analysis Record (LSAR) database and provides the information necessary for the logistic support resources such as:
- Initial provisioning of spares;
- Support and Test Equipment;
- Packaging, Handling, Storage and Transportation.
Pearson Engineering expertise extends to the management and development of the LSA that include:
