Logistics Planning and Product Design and Development Services

Early logistics planning ensures supportability is built into the product.

Requirements Traceability and Management ensure product quality and consistency throughout the product development process.

In the product design and development phase, defining the maintenance concept is a critical step as it serves as the foundation for all subsequent logistics product development and support services planning.

Logistics Support Analyses such as the Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA), and Reliability, Maintainability and Availability (RM&A) analysis are the genesis of any effective and economical logistics planning effort and includes studies of Operation Availability (Ao), Reliability Block Diagrams (RBD), and Failure Mode and Effect Analysis and the Criticality Analysis (FMECA).

Logistics Support requirements are analyzed between ILS and Engineering to ensure program goals are met. Logistics Support Analyses occur at the beginning of the system’s development and are updated throughout the life of the program. When logistics support updates are required, they are introduced into the system in the same manner as the initial design documents ensuring that all aspects of support are accounted for.

Maintenance Planning, the Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA) and Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Analysis all define the level of maintenance support the product or system receives and thus, aligns all product support with this defining characteristic. Critical logistics support data derived from these two basic logistics analyses are sparing lists and provisioning data.

Leonardo DRS has the experience to assist you in determining what level of support is appropriate for your product or system while in the developmental stage. We can conduct the required analyses to support logistics planning for your product or system. We provide a unique viewpoint that considers the end-user’s needs and limitations, and factors that into shaping the maintenance concept for a support program.
