Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) - Putting it all Together

Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) is an integration of the traditional elements of logistics to provide cost-effective support to the warfighter/end user of complex systems and equipment. The effective application of ILS resources is essential to any program's success, particularly when applied in the early phases. Although the concept of "logistics" has been around since the dawn of man, the need for logistics and its increasingly effective execution has become more and more sophisticated in recent years. The two world wars fought in the 20th century saw the beginning of logitics operations and activities on a scale never before seen. Although effective at winning the wars, logistics during that time was largely accomplished by brute force, with little emphasis on cost-effectiveness and integration of logistic activities. Modern military program budgets and commercial customer demands require a change to the brute force approach.

This three-day workshop is designed to assist logisticians, logistic elements specialists, program managers, logistic managers, systems engineers, and design engineers in developing an understanding of ILS programs and their role in support of a successful ILS program. This workshop is designed to clarify the issues and demonstrate how to integrate efforts so the real impact of ILS can be realized through the development of an effective and efficient logistics program.

At the end of this course, the participant will have an operational understanding of ILS and the tools available to effectively implement an ILS program.

Logistic Support Analysis (LSA)

Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) is a process that applies a combination of systems engineering-related techniques to improve system performance and reduce cost of ownership during all phases of a program. This workshop introduces the major analyses tasks involved in an effective LSA program.

This three-day workshop is designed to familiarize program managers, engineers, and logisticians with the objectives, methods, and tools used by industry and government to apply LSA to the design and support of modern systems and equipment. It includes an overview of the common methods for documenting LSA data in a traditional LSA Record (LSAR) format. An overview of available LSA standards is provided, as well as a discussion of GEIA-STD-0007 and the future of LSARs.

The desired learning outcome for the workshop is an understanding of the concepts and methodology of LSA and the relationship between the analyses and documentation of results, learning how LSA can reduce cost and improve system availability, and understanding the uses of LSA data.
