ILS and LSA for the defense industry

Etteplan's defense industry knowledge is based on its long-term customer relationships. The integrated approach, also referred to as Integrated Logistics Support (ILS), enables an accurate estimation of the total life-cycle cost of an aircraft, including logistics and maintenance requirements over its life cycle. Taking into account that an aircraft can be in use for more than 50 years means that the operating and maintenance costs will make up a considerable amount of its total life-cycle costs. Using ILS methodology makes it possible to reduce the total life-cycle costs while keeping high operational availability. Etteplan supports its customers with calculations, availability analyses, maintainability and safety analyses and solutions. The ILS approach is integrated in each stage of product development and together with Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) provides a comprehensive service package designed to fulfill the defense industry needs.
