Level of Repair Analysis (LORA)
This standard establishes general requirements and descriptions of specific activities for performance of LORA during the life cycle of products or equipment. When these requirements and activities are performed in a logical and iterative nature, they comprise the LORA process.
Estimating life cycle support costs has become problematic due to a lack of a standard analytical methodology in both government and industry. This standard provides a standardized approach for implementing and conducting the Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) activities required by the SAE standard TA-STD-0017 to determine an effective maintenance and support structure for a product. This document provides general requirements and descriptions of activities which, when performed in a logical and iterative nature, comprise the LORA process. These requirements are structured for maximum flexibility in their application.
