Supportability Analysis Resources
In keeping with the "Fast, Lethal, Supportable: The Application of Supportability Analysis" theme of the workshop, wanted to also share with the community some of the wide array of resources available here at DAU on this topic, including:
Continuous Learning Modules
- CLL 008 Designing for Supportability in DoD Systems
- CLL 012 Supportability Analysis
- CLL 029 Condition Based Maintenance (CBM+)
- CLL 030 Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)
- CLL 057 Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) –Introduction
- CLL 058 Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) -Theory & Principles
- CLL 059 Sustaining Engineering
To gain a better appreciate of the range of public- and private-sector tools and data sources available, encourage you to also visit our Product Support Analytical Tools Database. This repository profiles hundreds of government and commercial tools used to help facilitate product support decisions, with an emphasis on DoD weapon system product support. This database includes decision support tools and data sources for product support modeling, simulation, management, analysis, assessment, evaluation, and logistics product data management. Note: after watching the overview video, users should sign-in to the page (using the “Sign In” link in the top right corner of the screen, since the vast majority of the tools listed in the database are either commercial or non-DAU government, and are not visible without being logged into the site), the click the “Launch Tool Button”. Users can filter by process that the tool supports (e.g., selecting “Supportability Analysis” link pulls up over 100 tools and databases).
Additionally, check out some of the related professional books from our Life Cycle Logistics Recommended Reading List.
Finally, in addition to a range of Supportability Analysis-related commercial standards and handbooks (recommend checking the ASSIST website to confirm those with DoD adoption notices), DAU provides direct links to the MIL-HDBK-502A Product Support Analysis as an integral part of our DoD Product Support Guidebook Suite.
