INTEGRATED LOGISTICS SUPPORT IN HIGH-TECHNOLOGY COMPLEX SYSTEMS THAT ARE USED BEYOND THEIR DESIGNED LIFE

Keith Richard Lambert

Abstract


A high-technology complex system can be supported during its extended life by using an integrated logistics support system (ILSS). The process to develop an ILSS is used and is familiar in industrial and military complex systems. This paper discusses the advantages and implications of developing an ILSS for high-technology complex systems that are being used beyond their intended designed life. A literature review of the integrated logistics support (ILS), obsolescence, and diminishing manufacturer sources and material shortages (DMSMS) literature was conducted. The ILS and obsolescence components of several high-technology complex systems were studied for this paper.
