The purpose of the study project is to provide an understanding of how the basic issue and intent of the Logistic Support Analysis LSA process may be applied to a major NAVAIRSYSCOM aircraft program through interface and integration with the system engineering process. Preparatory to study project report preparation analysis of MIL-STD-1388-1 and -2 and associated military standards and specifications, and interviews with the authors of MIL-STD-1388 was completed. The study project report portrays application of the LSA and system engineering processes to the acquisition life cycle of a hypothetical aircraft program involving competitive prototypes in the Validation Phase. An overview of the LSA process is provided as it integrates with the system engineering effort in the progressive establishment of engineering specifications and baselines. Progress is related to design reviews and logistic system appraisals throughout the acquisition life cycle. Conclusions and recommendations center on the potential for successfully incorporating logistic considerations in aircraft design.
