1. Maintenance Planning. The process conducted to evolve and establish
maintenance concepts and requirements for the lifetime of a materiel system.
2. Manpower and Personnel. The identification and acquisition of military and
civilian personnel with the skills and grades required to operate and support a
materiel system over its lifetime at peacetime and wartime rates.
3. Supply Support. All management actions, procedures, and techniques used to determine requirements to acquire, catalog, receive, store, transfer, issue, and
dispose of secondary items. This includes provisioning for initial support as well as replenishment supply support.
4. Support Equipment. All equipment (mobile or fixed) required to support the
operation and maintenance of a materiel system. This includes associated multi-use end items, ground-handling and maintenance equipment, tools, meteorology and calibration equipment, test equipment, and automatic test equipment. It includes the acquisition of logistics support for the support and test equipment itself.
5. Technical Data. Recorded information regardless of form or character (such as
manuals and drawings) of a scientific or technical nature. Computer programs and related software are not technical data; documentation of computer programs and related software are. Also excluded are financial data or other information related to contract administration.
6. Training and Training Support. The processes, procedures, techniques, training devices, and equipment used to train civilian and active duty and reserve military personnel to operate and support a materiel system. This includes individual and crew training; new equipment training; initial, formal, and on-the-job training; and logistic support planning for training equipment and training device acquisitions and installations.
7. Computer Resources Support. The facilities, hardware, software, documentation, manpower, and personnel needed to operate and support embedded computer systems.
8. Facilities. The permanent, or semi-permanent, or temporary real property assets required to support the materiel system, including conducting studies to define types of facilities or facility improvements, locations, space needs, utilities, environmental requirements, real estate requirements, and equipment.
9. Packaging, Handling, Storage, and Transportation. The resources, processes,
procedures, design considerations, and methods to ensure that all system,
equipment, and support items are preserved, packaged, handled, and transported properly, including environmental considerations, equipment preservation requirements for short- and long-term storage, and transportability.
10. Design Interface. The relationship of logistics-related design parameters, such as reliability and maintainability, to readiness and support resource requirements. These logistics-related design parameters are expressed in operational terms rather than inherent values and specifically related to system readiness objectives and support costs of the materiel system.
