Logistics Product Data Analysis

The graphic below clearly depicts the critical impact that early design decisions have on the Life Cycle Costs of a project.  At Harry Kahn Associates our ISO-9001:2015 certified processes ensure that valid, informed decisions are made early in the design process in order to control Life Cycle Costs. Our experienced logisticians can guide you through these ever increasing demands while you concentrate on producing the product.

Our goal is your success in meeting these existing and emerging requirements.  To this end:

  • Our logistics service offerings are aligned to the DoD Product Support Manager (PSM) construct which brings to bear new logistic considerations/requirements for OEMs.
  • We have extensive expertise supporting DoD and military services acquisition programs.

In conjunction with OEM design engineers, we develop and validate the logistics data from detailed level drawings and parts lists, updating as required. We identify and recommend areas for supportability improvement in the planning process and monitor results throughout the project. Our logistic element planning causes or influences the delivery of support element processes that reflect the requirements of the equipment configurations it supports, its compatibility with companion elements, and consistency with other relevant supportability and program management systems.

Typical LPD developed and analyses performed include but are not limited to:

  • Provisioning Parts Lists (PPL)
  • Maintenance Plans (MaPl)
  • Supplemental Data For Provisioning (SDFP)
  • Interim Support Items List (ISIL)
  • Failure Modes Effects & Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
  • Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA)
  • Level Of Repair Analysis (LORA)
  • Reliability Center Maintenance Analysis (RCMA)

Logistics Product Data is developed in accordance with the specifications GEIA-STD-0007, MIL-STD-1388-1A/2B, MIL-PRF-49506 as required, utilizing automated LPD database software to capture and organize the data for reporting and delivery products. This ensures a logical, repeatable, analytical, step-by-step process that is auditable and produces logistics support products that are required throughout the various life-cycle phases of the subject equipment. These products are compatible with a variety of LPD database software and satisfy all Government Logistics contract line item (CLIN) deliverables typically required.


The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012, Section 832 mandates the control of DoD costs for operation and support of weapons systems, and charges the military departments to ensure that sustainment factors are fully considered and appropriate measures taken to reduce costs by influencing system design early in development…  At Harry Kahn Associates our logistics service offerings are specifically structured to achieve these objectives for our customers.
