MIL STD- Integrated Logistics Support Program Requirements.pdf|
This document establishes the requirements, procedures and formats to be used for the development and documentation of an Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) Program. Integrated Logistic Support, including maintainability requirements, is the result of a planning process designed to aid in achieving maximum overall system effectiveness by taking advantage of the direct relationship which exists between hardware design characteristics and resultant logistic support requirements by considering both, concurrently throughout the design process, in a quantitative manner to provide a basis for weapons/weapon systems/equipment optimization through sound engineering trade-off. As a result, provision is made for more timely and effective support of military weapons systems and individual equipments, in accordance with the stated weapon system plan to be used throughout the entire life cycle. In addition, the documentation required will provide accurate records to assure continuation of an adequate logistics support base throughout the operational life cycle of a weapons system or equipment.
