MIL-HDBK-1390, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HANDBOOK: LEVEL OF REPAIR ANALYSIS (LORA) (29-JAN-2015)
MIL-HDBK-1390, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HANDBOOK:
LEVEL OF REPAIR ANALYSIS (LORA) (29-JAN-2015)., This handbook addresses the overall LORA process and its associated activities, the selection and tailoring of those activities to meet DoD program supportability objectives, and sample contract language for acquiring LORA deliverables. The handbook offers implementation guidance on SAE AS1390, Level of Repair Analysis, activities as an integral part of the overall systems engineering process. The information contained herein is applicable, in part or in whole, to all system acquisition programs, major modification programs, and applicable research and development projects requiring LORA through all phases of the product life cycle. The focus of this handbook is to provide guidance to the members of the defense acquisition workforce who are responsible for the supportability of materiel systems requiring LORA. This handbook provides guidance for the framework and descriptions governing the performance of Level of
Repair Analysis during a productís life cycle as defined by SAE AS1390, Level of Repair Analysis (LORA).
When these requirements and activities are performed in a logical and iterative nature, they comprise the LORA
process. The LORA process is an analytical effort undertaken to influence decisions on a systemís design,
maintenance planning, cost, and Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element resources. As a consequence, the
LORA process forms an integral part of the Product Support Analysis (PSA) process by using results of, and
feeding results to, various PSA activities and the Logistics Product Data (LPD) as defined in SAE TA-STD-
0017, Product Support Analysis. SAE AS1390 was adopted for use by the DoD on 08 October 2014 and SAE TA-STD-0017 was adopted for use
by the DoD on 11 June 2013. This handbook applies to all system acquisition programs, major modification programs, and applicable
research and development projects requiring LORA through all phases of the product life cycle.
