New Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) Resources
In case you were not aware, a new MIL-HDBK-1390 Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) was issued in late-January and is now available. According to the document’s introduction, “this handbook provides guidance for the framework and descriptions governing the performance of Level of Repair Analysis during a product’s life cycle as defined by SAE AS1390, Level of Repair Analysis (LORA). When these requirements and activities are performed in a logical and iterative nature, they comprise the LORA process. The LORA process is an analytical effort undertaken to influence decisions on a system’s design, maintenance planning, cost, and Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element resources. As a consequence, the LORA process forms an integral part of the Product Support Analysis (PSA) process by using results of, and feeding results to, various PSA activities and the Logistics Product Data (LPD) as defined in SAE TA-STD-0017, Product Support Analysis." As a sidenote, please keep in mind that military handbooks such as this are for guidance only and cannot be cited as a requirement.
