The Interactive Computer Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS) is an on-line provisioning data tool that uses cooperative database technology on both mainframe and personal computer platforms. It enables provisioning personnel to create, validate, correct, and manipulate Provisioning Technical Documentation (PTD). Interactive Computer Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS).
The Navy requires Provisioning Technical Data (PTD) to be delivered in a format accepted by the Interactive Computer Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS). The ICAPS software is designed to support and accept data in various provisioning LMI formats. LMI summaries contain information that the Government needs in order to assess design status, conduct logistics planning and analysis, influence program decisions, and verify that contractor performance meets system supportability requirements. The LMI summaries can be delivered as stand-alone reports or as an integral part of other systems engineering documentation. The Provisioning Performance Schedule is a non-technical schedule of events occurring during the provisioning process. It is the only provisioning requirement that varies in NAVSEA contracts. The Provisioning Parts Data (PPD) identifies all support items that can be disassembled, reassembled, and, when combined, that constitute the end item. The PPD contains data required to catalogue an item in the Navy/DoD Supply System, build Allowance Part Lists (APL), and provide for inventory management.

Note: the term LMI (Logistics Management Information) used above has been replaced with the term "Logistics Product Data." The LMI terminology came from the now-cancelled MIL-PRF-49506, which was superseded by TechAmerica GEIA-STD-0007-B "Logistics Product Data".
