The Logistics Support Analysis Plan (LSAP) defines the plans and procedures of an
enterprise for the management and conduct by that enterprise of a fully integrated
technical program in conduct of the logistics support analysis and design element(s) of a
project, as a part of the systems engineering effort.
The LSAP, including or supplemented by subordinate plans, is used to provide direction and
guidance to the technical team responsible for conduct of the work. The LSAP may also be
used to provide visibility, to a customer, of a tenderer's or enterprise's proposed logistics
engineering planning and processes.
The content of the LSAP is intended to be responsive to contract requirements, if any, but is
not, itself, intended to be invoked contractually.
The LSAP is subordinate to and derives its authority from a Systems Engineering
Management Plan or similar document which contains the highest level of project technical
planning. This LSAP Data Item Description (DID) may also be cited contractually in a
Statement of Requirement (SOR), Statement of Work (SOW), a Contract Data
Requirements List (CDRL), or within a standard invoked by a SOR or SOW.
The LSAP may exist in partial satisfaction of the requirements of process standards such as
ISO 9001 and MIL-STD-1388-1A and 2B, which may be invoked contractually or by
enterprise management decision. This plan may be the product of sub task 102.2.1 of MIL-STD-1388-1A, Logistic Support Analysis Plan, is relevant.
This DID incorporates and adapts some non-copyrighted material contained in DI-ILSS-80531 and MIL-STD-499B draft issued by the United States Government.
