Abstract : Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) policy and guidance within the DOD and the Air Force refer to a relatively sophisticated process of quantitative analysis as being essential to logistics support planning during all phases of the system acquisition life cycle. The feasibility and practicality of using computer programmed simulation and analytical models during conceptual phase ILS planning are examined with emphasis on Air Force electronic system acquisition programs. Five existing logistics models are evaluated for compatibility with the quantitative requirements and availability of source data within the conceptual phase ILS planning environment. Conclusions and suggested prerequisites for implementation are presented. (Author)
