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.
Rationale: 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.
