Abstract:

During recent years there has been a growing concern within the Department of Defense DoD for the consequences of ignoring predicted logistics costs for any given system while it is still in design. In order to deal with the problems of ownership as well as acquisition of a system, one must be able to bridge the gap between the inherent characteristics of the design and environment in which the system will be operated and maintained. A valuable technique for identifying and evaluating the most cost effective options for management decision in this area is the performance of Logistic Support Analysis LSA utilizing computerized support modeling. A demonstration of how computerized support modeling GEMM can be applied in this manner, is presented by considering the design and development of an electronics system for Army use. Two examples are provided in order to illustrate typical LSAs during both the Advanced Development and Engineering Development phases. Modified author abstract
