Information : Logistic Support Analysis/Integrated Logistics Support Database
The Lifetime Support Operations at Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems-Surface Systems implemented a Logistic Support Analysis/Integrated Logistics Support Database. This system successfully manages reliability, maintainability, and availability of information in a standardized, user-friendly format.
Historically, Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems-Surface Systems (NE&SS-SS) produced independent Logistic Support Analysis (LSA)/Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) products for each system. Data was collected, reported, and presented in various formats. A standardized, centrally supported application to capture, store, and manage data did not exist. In February 2001, the Lifetime Support Operations at Lockheed Martin NE&SS-SS implemented a universal LSA/ILS Database for data collection, storage, and report generation.
The LSA/ILS Database was created in Microsoft Access and can integrate with the Microsoft Office suite of products. As a flexible tool for ongoing development, this network-supported database is structured to support reliability assessment as well as comprehensive maintenance activities. The LSA/ILS Database products include Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) summaries, maintenance significant item reports, maintenance task summaries, task analysis summaries, and test equipment lists. Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) and Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) are tracked for each catalogued item. Maintenance Task Analyses are performed using FMECA outcomes, thereby expanding repair information for improved item availability. End effects of all failures are rolled up to the system level, providing both microscopic and macroscopic availability perspectives. Due to the criticality of certain functions (e.g., reliability assessment), the LSA/ILS Database is password protected by category to inhibit cross-migration of data. The system also maintains item locations and stores preventive maintenance procedures. Test equipment maintenance/calibration and item measurement range variations (e.g., graceful degradation) are handled as well.
The LSA/ILS Database is customized to the Statement of Work, performs at the organizational level, and supports several programs simultaneously. The database enabled Lockheed Martin NE&SS-SS to standardize, streamline, and reduce the overall cost of developing, implementing, and managing an integrated logistics program.
