Abstract : This guide is designed to provide middle and top level logistics and acquisition managers with a working familiarity of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS). It addresses how to manage the ILS process throughout the life cycle from preconcept exploration through post-production support. It provides an organized approach and architecture for integrating support considerations into the requirements definition and design processes; integrating the support elements into a cohesive package; designing and acquiring support elements; and providing integrated support resources to achieve readiness and support objectives. The guide shows the inter-relationships of the major activities in the acquisition process of systems engineering, test, cost, risk, production, contracts, etc. It is designed to bridge the gap between general acquisition and logistics policy contained in DoD Directive 5000.1 and DoD Instruction 5000.2 and specific detailed procedures such as those in MIL-STD-1388-lA.
