  1. Systems Reliability, Supportability and Availability Analysis Level of Repair Analysis

  2. Introduction • Level of Repair Analysis utilized to develop support concept of system during acquisition process • Complex system with thousands of assemblies, sub-assemblies, components, etc. • Optimal provision of repair and maintenance facilities to minimize overall life-cycle costs • LORA Concept: • Organizational Repair • Discard at Point of Failure • Depot Repair • Intermediate Repair • Contractor Repair

  3. Simple LORA Case

  4. When LORA is performed Initial Sustainment Level of Repair Analysis

  5. Major Phases What is the most cost effective support solution? Where can I perform maintenance? What can be repaired?

  6. Standards • MIL-PRF-49506 • MIL-HNBK-502 • AR 700-127 • AR 750-1

  7. Sparing to Availability • Standard initial provisioning computations for computing stockage requirements old way of doing business • Retail stockage criteria • Operating level at ORG, DSU, and GSU • Availability • Different ways of calculating • Inherent, Achieved and Operational LDT, ADT, MTTR

  8. Optimization Approach Maintenance Policy Availability Constraint Cost Ceiling Cost > $max A0 < 95 % Recommended Policy Cost above optimum Solution Space Optimum Policy Field Repair/Replace Strategy Depot Repair/Replace Strategy Distance from Organizational Unit

  9. Important Definitions • End Item • Highest level of Indenture • System, an end item, a major assembly of an item, or an item itself • LRU/NLRU • LRU removed and replaced • Restores end item to operationally ready condition • Directly from the end item • SRU/NSRU • SRUs are items that are part of an LRU • SRU will repair the failed LRU • SRU repair is off-equipment maintenance

  10. Important Inputs • Twelve Categories (DoD COMPASS model) • System information • Supply • Common labor • Transportation • Support equipment • Repairmen • End item • Line Replaceable Unit (LRU); • Shop Replaceable Unit (SRU); • Nonreparable LRU; • Nonreparable SRU • Additional fields

  11. Important Outputs • Maintenance concept • Allocation and cost of support equipment and repairmen • Replacement task distribution • Maintenance task distribution • Amount and cost of initial spares • Cost of consumption spares • Overall Life Cycle Logistics Cost (LCLC) of the system ALWAYS KEEP THE MODEL ASSUMPTIONS IN MIND

  12. Optimized Maintenance Policy

  13. LORA Candidate Identification • LORA process is primarily applied to corrective maintenance actions after the Failure Modes and Effects Criticality Analysis (FMECA) has been performed. • Preventive and corrective maintenance actions are analyzed separately

  14. Non-Economic Analysis • Provides a means of examining the factors that determine the maintenance level for repair analysis candidates. • Addresses the pre-empting factors that override cost considerations or existing repair analysis decisions on similar systems. • A pre-empting factor is a restraint, stipulation, or special requirement that forces the repair or discard decision to a specific maintenance level or limits the support alternatives available

  15. Non-Economic Analysis (cont.) • The non-economic LORA is a logical sequence of questions concerning factors that affect the level at which repair or discard can be performed. • questions in the following non- economic analysis table should be asked of each item on the repair analysis candidate list • response—“yes” or “no”—reflects the maintenance level where repair or discard decisions are restricted and the reason for the restriction • analyst determines a preliminary maintenance concept based on the “yes” responses • “No” responses should be determined, but need not be reported

  16. Importance of Non-Economic LORA • Constraints Determination • Preempting factors, which override cost considerations or existing LORA decisions

  24. Indenturing Example 2: Multiple LRUs

  25. Indenturing Example 3: LRU within LRU

  26. 10 Minute Break

  27. COMPASS SOFTWARE

  28. COMPASS Software Introduction https://www.logsa.army.mil/lec/compass/

  29. Unit Price Turn Around Times Labor Rates Contractor Costs Target Availability Inputs Support Structure Failure Rate COMPASS uses mixed integer programming to connect a multitude of inputs to arrive at an optimal result. Non-linear programming is used to calculate initial spares. Outputs Cost Resources Required Maintenance Policy Obtained from Army Slides

  30. COMPASS Inputs • Two categories • System level • Component level • System level Inputs • Population characteristics • Operating Environment • Support structure concept • Component level inputs • Indentured system • Repairable inputs • Contractor repair
