4. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS.
LSA documentation, including LSAR data, is generated as a result of the analysis tasks specified in MIL-STD-1388-1. As such, the LSAR data shall serve as the Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) technical database applicable to all materiel acquisition programs to satisfy the support acquisition. The DEDs, data field lengths, and data formats described in appendices A and E shall be adhered to by the performing activity in establishing the LSAR database. The specific data entry media, storage, and maintenance procedures are left to the performing activity. Validated LSAR ADP systems are available for automated storage of the LSAR data. A list of these LSAR ADP systems may be obtained from the USAMC Materiel Readiness Support Activity, ATTN: AMXMD-EL, Lexington, KY 40511-5101. The LSAR data forms a database to:
a. Determine the impact of design features on logistics support.
b. Determine the impact of the proposed logistics support system on the system/equipment availability and maintainability goals.
c. Provide data for tradeoff studies, life cycle costing, and logistic support modeling.
d. Exchange valid data among functional organizations.
e. Influence the system/equipment design.
f. Provide data for the preparation of logistics products specified by DIDs.
g. Provide the means to assess supportability of the fielded item.
h. Provide the means to evaluate the impact of engineering change,
product improvement, major modification or alternative proposals.

This standard prescribes the data element definitions (DED), data field lengths, and formats for Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) Record (LSAR) data. It identifies the LSAR reports that are generated from the LSAR data and identifies the LSAR relational tables and automated data processing (ADP) specifications for transmittal and delivery of automated LSAR data.
1.2 Application of standard.
This standard applies to all system/equipment acquisition programs, major modification programs, and applicable research and development projects through all phases of the system/equipment life cycle. This standard is for use by both contractor and government activities. As used in this standard, the requiring authority is generally a government activity but may be a contractor when LSA documentation requirements are levied on subcontractors. The performing activity may be either a contractor or government activity. The use of the term, contract, in this standard includes any document of agreement between organizations to include between a government activity and another government activity, between a government activity and a contractor, or between a contractor and another contractor.
