Life Cycle Cost and Life Cycle Cost Management opened another dimension of complexity for DoD managers. Logistics Support Analysis is seen by some as a competing subject. This literature review considers life cycle cost, logistics support analysis, and integrated logistics support. Conclusions are that logistics support analysis is a proper subset of integrated logistics support. while integrated logistics support is a proper subset of life cycle cost management. Further research is needed to verify the cost effectiveness of logistics support analysis. If data cannot be gathered for a proper statistical analysis, then more case studies such as the SINCGARS 1975 study need to be performed. LSA is defined as The selective application of scientific and engineering efforts undertaken during the acquisition process, as part of the system engineering and design process, to assist in complying with supportability and other ILS objectives.
