This book provides logistics support managers, system engineers, and other systems specialists with a complete working model of logistics support analysis (LSA) management. This model, which is thoroughly tested by the Department of Defense, includes how-to guidelines on LSA requirements and on the execution of specific tasks - for example, creating "departure point" checklists and designing customized project development strategies. The interrelationship of LSA techniques and new management initiatives is described from the perspectives of both the government manager and the contractor. The book describes important new engineering and modeling tools (TQM, CALS, Concurrent Engineering) that may be utilized in coordination with LSA. The checklists, worksheets, and sample documents that are included will simplify interpretation of government standards. Most important, the focus is on the implementation of practical LSA strategies that enable government agencies to achieve better product support at lower cost; and enable prime contractors and subcontractors to write winning proposals.
