Abstract:

This thesis involved the development of a microcomputer program to help tailor Logistic Support Analysis LSA, Mil-Std-1388-1A, requirements for contractual efforts. It is referred to as the LSA Decision Support System DSS Program. This program is intended to aid working level logisticians in developing good first-cut LSA requirements. There are four main features in the program 1 Mil-Std-1388-1A task and subtask descriptions with added notes from LSA experts, 2 a replication of the applicability matrix in Mil-Std-1388-1A, 3 a unique tailoring portion with notes from LSA experts, and 4 the AFALC LSA Lessons Learned as of July 1988. The programming language used is dBASE III PLUS it is required to run the LSA DSS program. The program was structured to be easily updated and expanded.
