This thesis involves the development of a computer based Decision Support System DSS to assist in selecting the Logistic Support Analysis LSA tasks of Mil-Std-1388-1A as an integral part of the system engineering process. There are six main features to the DSS 1 a general overview of the DSS, LSA and system engineering 2 a review of the LSA task of Mil-Std-1388-1A and associated application guidance 3 the LSA tasks selection section 4 an LSA task selection review and update section 5 an LSA task selection print section and, 6 an LSA Lessons Learned review section. Within the DSS there are sections which provide the user access to the Mil-Std-1388-1A LSA task descriptions and specific LSA task application guidance for each LSA task. The task application guidance provides information relating to the LSA tasks use, interfaces with other LSA tasks and LSA Records, and interfaces with specific engineering tasks i.e., reliability, maintainability, etc. The DSS is programmed entirely in dBase III PLUS, and requires dBase III PLUS in order to be run. The DSS is structured in a top-down modular format for easy modification and enhancement.
