Integrated Logistic Support Elements
ILS addresses a wide range of support processes in an integrated manner. In the ILS methodology these distinct processes are termed ILS Elements.
To ensure the cost effective application of ILS, both the scope and depth of these elements need to be tailored to meet the specific requirements of each project. This can mean disregarding some elements, with justification, or adding in supplementary elements.
Interactive Technical Solutions Ltd (ITS) provides tailored ILS solutions to the MoD and Industry, to optimise the Whole Life Cost (WLC) of products and projects. Our team of ILS engineers have been intimately involved in Capability Integration on numerous projects and are fully conversant with MoD Capability Requirements including the Support Solution Envelope and underpinning Governing Policies (GP). Our ILS engineers are fully conversant with the implementation of the requirements of DEFSTAN 00-600 and JSP 886 including utilising the Support Solution Development Tool (SSDT) in the contemporary engineering environment.
