         Life Cycle Management Integration
   LSA (MIL-STD-1388-1) was developed to insure logistics was designed into
    weapon systems when they were developed.
   LSAR (1388-2B) provided a standard data format integrating the following:
     –   Operations and Maintenance Requirements
     –   Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability
     –   Failure modes, effects and criticality analysis
     –   RCM
     –   Task Analysis (Tools, Spare Parts, Task Steps, TM)
     –   Item Identification (Cataloging, CAGE/Ref #/NSN)
     –   Part Application (Provisioning, PLISN)
     –   Transportability
     –   Personnel (Skills, Training)
     –   Support Equipment
     –   Unit Under Test
     –   Facility
     –   Packaging
     –   Drawings

                       PowerLOG Successes
   “PowerLOG, being very similar to the Navy I-CAPS (but with a greater impact), is used
    to help us keep the Coast Guard supply Support and Provisioning system on the leading
    edge..... I have been working with LOGSA for quite some time. Back to 1388-2
    (A)MRSA. Every organization should be following your lead", Dennis Clark,
    WRSystems LTD
   “We have significantly cut data entry/analysis time already (using powerLOG), and have
    greatly improved the speed at which we can bring others up to speed on the LSA process.
    This will enhance our ability to meet our cost and schedule for this and future
    programs….The software and helpdesk is leaps-and-bounds above the others I've used for
    LSA." Suzanne C. Carrillo, Teledyne Brown Engineering, Global Missile Defense
    (GMD)- GBI Orbital Boost Vehicle program
   “Allowed us to complete our first provisioning effort. Without it I don't know how we
    would've done it.” Glenn Dindinger, SFA Inc., Frederick Manufacturing Division
   “Replaced Legacy Software, saved dollars on buying another COTS software package.”
    Steven A. Matthews, Sr., SBCCOM
   “It provides a quick, easy to view LSAR data generated by other applications. It is easy
    to use and has a visibility that other applications lack.” Lou Rizzo, Lockheed Martin

Taken from AM General’s 2005 powerLOG Users’
             Group Conference
                                               In early 2000, AM General was
                                               awarded a contract supporting
                                               the development and
                                               deployment of the Improved

                                               requirements identified prior to
                                               the start of “Operation Iraqi
                                               Freedom” required us to
                                               accelerate our support for
                                               fielding this critical system.
                                               Our ILS team surged to meet
                                               this challenge…nine months
                                               ahead of schedule!
                                               Our use of PowerLOG-J
                                               played a major part in
                                               meeting this accelerated
                                               schedule.

                  Taken from AM General’s 2005 powerLOG Users’ Group Conference


•   In our current PowerLOG-J database AM General has a total of 11 active
    systems under contract that total over 46,000 line items. The largest system
    we have in PowerLOG-J is the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Vehicle (HMMWV)
    which contains over 18,000 line items.
•   Using PowerLOG-J, we have produced a variety of LSAR reports tailored to
    the customer’s requirements for use during Provisioning conferences. If
    needed, changes are made on the spot during the conference to enhance
    product delivery. From day one, all of our LSAR deliverables have been
    accepted by TACOM for new and existing items that are being applied to our
    Soldier's vehicles and component systems.
   AM General’s objective is to provide complete and accurate LSAR products to
    our customers for their Provisioning and Technical Manual requirements.
    This is the product our Soldiers use daily to keep the equipment maintained
    in order to carry out a successful war and peace time mission.
   Without PowerLOG-J, most of these tasks become difficult to achieve for
    our customers’ requirements.
