A Critical Review of the Integrated Logistics Support Suite for Aerospace and Defence Programmes

  • Ljubisa Vaskic (a1) and Kristin Paetzold (a1)

Abstract

The Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) can be described as an approach for optimisation of in-service (logistics) activities and minimisation of the life cycle costs of a system. ILS is an integral part of systems engineering in aerospace and defence programmes.

More recently, the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD) has released a broad set of specifications for ILS, the so-called ASD ILS Suite. Most of these specifications are published in cooperation with the Aerospace Industries Association of America (AIA) and one specification with AIA and the Airlines for America (A4A). Thus, the ASD ILS Suite is recognised and used in the largest aerospace and defence markets.

The aim of this paper is to present the results of a critical review on the readiness of the ASD ILS Suite for its applicability in aerospace and defence programmes.
