Logistics Analysis

Logistics Analysis

Logistics Analysis (also known as Logistics Support Analysis or Product Support Analysis) is performed beginning in the earliest stages of system/material development to ensure that the supportability design characteristic is properly considered.

  1. Begins early in the program and continues through material and software design to include material and software changes throughout the life cycle
  2. Establish performance-based supportability requirements
  3. Provide a means to perform tradeoffs among supportability requirements and material/software design
  4. Types of analysis performed include:
    • Failure mode and effects analysis
    • Failure mode, effects, and criticality analysis (FMECA)
    • Fault tree analysis
    • Level of repair analysis (LORA)
    • Maintenance task analysis
    • Reliability, availability, and maintainability (RAM) analysis
    • RAM Cost rational
    • Manpower analysis
    • Operations and Support cost estimating
    • Supply chain Management
  5. Logistics Product Data is a product of the Logistics Analysis and is developed in accordance with SAE GEIA-STD-0007
