Supportability & Serviceability2 The Roadmap Definition and explanation of logistics and supportability The elements of logistics and system support Supply chain factors Transportation and packaging factors Warehousing and distribution factors
Supportability & Serviceability3 Definition of Supportability Definition: Supportability refers to the inherent characteristics of design and installation that enable the effective and efficient maintenance and support of the system throughout the life cycle.
Supportability & Serviceability4 Definition of Supportability Continued … Objective: To address not only the incorporation of reliability and maintainability characteristics in the design of the prime elements, but the design of the support infrastructure that is responsive to the demands of the prime elements.
Supportability & Serviceability5 Overall Logistics Cycle Definition of Logistics: Iterative approach to the management and technical activities necessary to, Develop support requirements. Acquire the required support. Provide required support at minimum cost.
Supportability & Serviceability6 Overall Logistics Cycle Continued … First segment of overall logistics: includes the procurement, distribution, transportation, warehousing, and ultimate delivery to the customer. Second segment of overall logistics: when system fails and items needs to be returned for intermediate-level and depot level.
Supportability & Serviceability7 Elements of Support Integrated logistics support Supply support Technical data Information systems, & Database structures. Computer resources Design Interface Packaging, handling storage,& transportation Maintenance facilities Training & Training support Maintenance planning Maintenance personnel Support equipment
Supportability & Serviceability8 Elements of Support Continued … Maintenance personnel: Installation, checkout, and sustaining support and maintenance. Training and training support : For system operator and maintenance personnel for Life cycle. Supply Support: Spares, repairable, non- repairable, consumables, special supplies etc.
Supportability & Serviceability9 Elements of Support Continued … Support Equipment: Tools, condition monitoring, diagnostic, checkout, special test, calibration equipments etc. Computer Resources: Software necessary to support scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. Packaging, handling, storage, and transportation: Special provisions, containers and supplies necessary.
Supportability & Serviceability10 Elements of Support Continued … Maintenance Facilities : Includes facilities to support all the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance actions at all the levels. Technical data, information systems, database structure: Includes system installations, checkout procedure, operating and maintenance instructions, modification instructions etc.
Supportability & Serviceability11 Measure of Supportability Supply Chain Factors are Capability: The ability to accomplish all of the functions required. Availability: The ability to respond to any, or all, of the requirements at any point in time when needed. Quality: The process responsiveness in terms of stated customer objectives.
Supportability & Serviceability12 Transportation Measures Factors for evaluating the effectiveness of transportation are Transportation routes Transportation capacity or capability Transportation time Transportation cost
Supportability & Serviceability13 Transportation Measures Continued … Figure 15.5 The various forms of transportation. Rail transportation Pipeline transportation Highway transportation Water transportation Air transportation Rail-truck (piggyback) Trailer-on-flatcar Container-on-flatcar Truck-water (fishyback) Roll-on/roll-off Container-on-ship Air-truck Truck-on-aircraft Container-on-aircraft Rail-water Train-on-ship Container-on-ship
Supportability & Serviceability14 Packaging Measures Availability: transportation capability will be available when required. Reliability: it will complete its mission as planned. Time: transport a product from on point to another. Cost: the cost of transportation or per one-way trip.
Supportability & Serviceability15 Packaging Measures Continued … Maintainability: applicable transportation capability can be required within specified time and resources in the event of a failure. Life-cycle cost (LCC): the cost of a given transportation capability for a designated period of time.
Supportability & Serviceability16 Warehousing and Distribution Measure The basic functions of warehousing are Movement Storage Information transfer
Supportability & Serviceability17 Warehousing and Distribution Measure Continued … The movement function: Receiving: the unloading of goods and products from an inbound carrier. Transfer: the physical movement of products into the warehouse for storage. Order picking: the selection of products from storage in response to customer orders.
Supportability & Serviceability18 Warehousing and Distribution Measure Continued … Cross-docking: the movement of products directly from the inbound receiving dock to the outbound shipping dock. Shipping: the packing, loading on an outbound carrier, and shipment of products to the desired customer destinations.
Supportability & Serviceability19 Types of Warehouses Private & Public warehouses General merchandise warehouses Commodity warehouses Bulk-storage warehouses Bonded warehouses Temperature-controlled warehouses Houshold goods warehouses
Supportability & Serviceability20 The metrics in Warehousing Time that it takes to ship a product Cost of product shipment – from storage to customer Cost of storage Percentage of space utilization Volume of product handled
Supportability & Serviceability21 Spares, repair parts and related inventory factors The inventories associated should be able to supply spare parts for unscheduled as well as scheduled maintenance actions The required inventory of spares depends on system maintenance concept and specific type and quantities are identified for each level of maintenance
Supportability & Serviceability22 Factors affecting quantity of spares Spare and repair parts covering actual item replacements occurring as a result of corrective & preventive maintenance Additional stock level of spares to compensate for repairable items in the process of undergoing maintenance
Supportability & Serviceability23 Factors affecting quantity of spares continued…….. Additional stock level of spares to compensate for the procurement lead times for item acquisition Additional Stock level of spares to compensate for the condemnation of scrap age or repairable items
Supportability & Serviceability24 Inventory system considerations Too much inventory to meet all demands leads to increased cost of maintaining the inventory Lack of appropriate inventory will lead to stock depletion and the system not being operational leading to higher costs Optimum balance between inventory on hand, procurement frequency and procurement quantity is needed
Supportability & Serviceability25 General deterministic inventory system geometry Operating level Peak Inventory Safety stock Periods of time, days Quantity of items in stock Consumption Order Point Receipts, Q Procurement lead time Reorder cycle Zero stock
Supportability & Serviceability26 Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) See Pages 257-263 Q* is called EOQ
Supportability & Serviceability27 Design review and evaluation Design reviews are done to ensure 1.Prime-mission related elements are designed to be supportable in an effective and efficient manner 2.Design of logistics and maintenance support infrastructure adequately responds in fulfilling all system requirements
Supportability & Serviceability28 Design review and evaluation continued……. 3. If requirements are met, the design is approved and the program enters into the next phase 4.If requirements are not met,the appropriate changes are initiated for corrective action
Supportability & Serviceability31 Supportability Analysis The supportability analysis (SA) constitutes the integration and application of different analytical techniques/methods to solve a wide variety of problems. SA is the process employed on an iterative basis throughout system design and development that addresses the issue of supportability
Supportability & Serviceability32 Supportability Analysis continued….. SA aids in the evaluation of prime equipment design characteristics in terms of logistic support requirements. SA aids in the evaluation of alternative repair policies allowable within the constraints dictated by the maintenance concept.
Supportability & Serviceability33 Objectives of SA Initially influence the design of a given system Aid in the identification of the logistics and maintenance support resources based on the assumed design configuration at the time Aid in the initial establishment of supportability requirements during conceptual design Aid in the early establishment of supportability design criteria
Supportability & Serviceability34 Objectives of SA continued…. Aid in the process of synthesis, analysis, and design optimization through accomplishment of trade off studies and evaluation of various design alternatives Aid in the evaluation of a given design configuration relative to the determining specific logistics and maintenance support resource requirements Aid in the measurement and evaluation or assessment of an operating system
Supportability & Serviceability36 CALS Continuous Acquisition and Life cycle Support CALS pertains to the application of computerized technology in the development and processing of data primarily in a digital format, with the objectives of reducing preparation and processing times, eliminating redundancies, shortening the system acquisition process, and reducing the overall program costs
