Life Cycle Cost (LCC)
Life-cycle cost analysis is a tool to determine the most cost-effective option among different competing alternatives to purchase, own, operate, maintain and, finally, dispose of an object or process, when each is equally appropriate to be implemented on technical grounds.
Logistics Support Analysis (LSA)
Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) is a structured approach to increase efficiency of maintenance and reduces the cost of providing support by preplanning all aspects of Integrated Logistics Support. A successful LSA will define those support requirements that are ideal for the system design.
MANPRINT is an Army program developed to optimize the human dimensions of systems design through early involvement in system design/ systems engineering. It was created to provide the initial quantitative structure for the MANPRINT community to participate in the systems design/ systems engineering processes.
Feasibility Studies/Depot Studies
A feasibility study is an assessment of the practicality of a proposed project or system. A feasibility study aims to objectively and rationally uncover the strengths and weaknesses of an existing business or proposed venture, opportunities and threats present in the natural environment, the resources required to carry through, and ultimately the prospects for success.
PowerLOG-J is a Client/Server and stand-alone Data Base Management System (DBMS). It's platform independent and relational database independent. PowerLOG- J satisfies logistics data management requirements including the Logistics Management Information Specification.
Maintenance Concept Definition
The maintenance concept is a brief description of the maintenance considerations, constraints, and plans for operational support of the system/equipment under development.
Support Equipment Recommendation Data (SERD)
SERD is defined as a report made up of six sections of Support Equipment (SE)/SE-relevant information be used for SE acquisition, logistic support, and life-cycle management purposes.
Repair Level Analysis (RLA)/Task Analysis
Level of Repair Analysis is used as an analytical methodology used to determine where an item will be replaced, repaired, or discarded based on cost considerations and operational readiness requirements.
A flexible and implementable strategic facility planning based on the specific and unique considerations of your organization needs to be developed through a multi-step process.
Safety Assessment Reports (SAR)
The SAR documents all safety features of the hardware, and system design and identifies procedural, hardware-related and software-related hazards that may be present in the system being acquired, including specific procedural controls and precautions that should be followed.
Supportability analysis is the procedures and methodologies employed to accomplish the planning, development, systems engineering, production and management that are essential to ensure logistics supportability of military systems and equipment delivered to users.
