Product maintenance is becoming more expensive due to the increasing complexity of both product design and associated maintenance requirements. In order to build the reliability, maintainability, and supportability characteristics into a product at minimum life-cycle costs, a structured methodology should be used to facilitate the early identification and integration of these characteristics in the product design, to develop the most effective product support concepts, and to define the product support resource requirements. To achieve these objectives, an integrated data base is required to integrate logistic related engineering information. The ISO STEP Product Logistic Support PLS Application Protocol suite APs now under development is proposed to define the data requirements for ensuring reliable, maintainable, and supportable products at minimum cost by integrating logistic support considerations into the evolving design, manufacturing, and support efforts. The development of the PLS APs will primarily be based on the integration of U.S. CALS LSAR and IETMDB standards and the European AECMA 2000M and 1000D specifications.
