ILS Executive Overview Course


The aim of the Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) Executive Overview Course is to provide Senior/Executive Management of Defence Industry, or those wishing to enter Defence Industry, with a top level understanding of the Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) disciplines and the ILS Elements that underpin Defence Acquisition and Sustainment activities.

The course delivers an overview of each of the LSA Tasks and their interrelationships whilst also identifying the depth of the data that support them.

The course also provides an understanding of the ILS specific Data Item Description (DIDs) and Contract Deliverable Requirement Lists (CDRLs) from the Australian Defence Contract (AUSDEFCON) system and permits attendees to understand the complexities of those deliverables along with how the data they provide is used throughout the Material Life Cycle (MLC) of the equipment.
