Abstract : The concept for Logistics Support Analysis was originally set forth in MIL-STD-1388-1 published in October 1973. Since that time each service has pursued an independent course in the applications of LSA. DOD policies and directives for Integrated Logistics Support and LSA have changed to reflect refinements to an availability of analytical techniques developed to meet state-of-the-art hardware requirements. This paper describes the latest effort to provide a standard LSA with the broadest possible application. The recently published MIL-STD-1388-1A overcomes many shortcomings that were identified with the original military standard. It defines the LSA tasks in greater detail and provides the capability to tailor the level of effort for LSA to meet the specific requirements of any given acquisition program. Also discussed in a proposed version of MIL-STD-1388-2A, DOD Requirements for a Logistic Support Analysis Record (LSAR). This document describes the data elements, definitions, and input data records for the DOD standard LSAR which is currently under development. (Author)
