Life Cycle Management

Sikorsky service and support embraces integrated logistics systems engineering as a way to enhance Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) planning. Our mission is to:

  • influence product design to incorporate logistics support considerations
  • identify support problems and cost drivers early
  • develop logistic support resource requirements for system life
  • develop a single logistics support database

Life Cycle Management can perform Level of Repair Analysis, Reliability Centered Maintenance, Maintenance Planning and Task Analysis, Support Resource Identification, OPTEMPO Based Spares part and Performance Based Logistics forecasting, and product and process improvement analysis all focused on minimizing the operating and support costs over the systems life cycle.

These analyses are captured in the Sikorsky Aircraft Maintainability System (SAMS), a key enabler used to document the logistics support resource requirements. SAMS contains information on tools, maintenance levels, spare parts, consumables, interchangeability, and drawing revisions, and is used to track and assess a product's supportability, reliability, costs, spares, and inventory control requirements. This singular, sophisticated database provides a complete spectrum of product support information in one location, and is used to leverage optimum support approaches.
