This course will address four of the key ILS disciplines involved in conducting Supportability Analysis (SA) and Supportability Engineering (SE). These are the key ILS elements that influence the physical resources required to deliver the agreed Support Solution once the system is accepted by the customer.  They are key cost drivers for both the warranty period and the longer term In-Service use periods; and are therefore key in understanding the support system demands throughout the systems In-Service period.


ILS-03, consisting of four days, will address four of the key ILS Elements required to develop robust and cost effective Support Solutions.  The topics addressed over the four days are: 

  1. Day One – Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA) – Explains how to conduct an MTA and its impact on support resource needs.
  2. Day Two – Availability, Reliability and Maintainability (ARM) Awareness – Introduces the topics of ARM from an ILS perspective.
  3. Day Three – Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Overview – Explains the use of RCM to develop Preventative Maintenance schedules.
  4. Day Four – Training Needs Analysis (TNA) Overview – Introduces the systems Approach to Training (SAT) for developing customer training.
