Abstract : Previous acquisitions of major weapon systems by the Pakistan Navy have lacked adequate logistic support planning. During most weapon system acquisitions, emphasis has traditionally been placed on getting the hardware in place with the least possible cost. Other elements affecting operational use, and specifically, sustained readiness, have clearly been secondary. Accordingly, after systems have been introduced into the navy, additional costly expenditures have been necessary to operate and maintain these systems effectively. As a solution to this problem, this thesis offers a simplified version of the Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) used by the United States Navy and other components of the U.S. Department of Defense for the life cycle support management of weapon systems from womb-to-tomb. By following the road map provided in this thesis, the Pakistan Navy should be in a better position to develop a streamlined life cycle support management pland for weapon systems during future acquisitions.
