Data Item Description:
Identification of the contractor's approach to and how the Logistics
Support Analysis will be conducted to meet program requirements as part of the
product design effort.
Demonstration and Validation Phase:
The design development phase in which product characteristics are validated
and refined through extensive study and analysis, hardware development, and

Full Scale Development Phase:
The design phase in which the product and all necessary support items are
designed, fabricated, and tested, including both contractor and customer test
Government Furnished Equipment:
Material provided by the Government to a contractor, or comparable
Government production facility, to be incorporated in, attached to, used with,
or used in support of an end item to be delivered to the Government or the
ordering activity, or which may be consumed or expended in the performance of
Integrated Logistics Support:
A composite of all considerations necessary to ensure the effective and
economical support of a product for its life cycle.
Integrated Logistics Support Plan:
A significant expansion of the
preliminary logistic support plan that documents all subsequent logistic
activities throughout the product life cycle.
Logistic Control Number:
A single-digit or single-letter code denoting the relationship of the coded
item to the total Government Logistics Support Analysis Record System.
The art and science of management, engineering, and technical activities
concerned with requirements, design, and resource supply and maintenance to
support objectives, plans, and operations.
Logistics Support Analysis:
The integration and application of various techniques and functions to
ensure consideration of supportability requirements in the product design
Logistics Support Analysis Record:
A written documentation which defines and records the technical
characteristics of a particular product and how to achieve those

An inherent design characteristic of a system or product pertaining to the
ease, accuracy, safety, and economy of performing maintenance actions.
The earliest design phase for identifying and preparing documentation to
define and establish the need for formally entering the acquisition process
for a particular product.
The design phase beginning when the product is produced for operational
use-includes training equipment, spares, and other support
A formal meeting between the customer and the contractor to review
