About LORA Training
Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) training teaches analytical methods used to determine where (level and/or location), and how analyzed equipment is best repaired, replaced, and/or discarded based on cost and operational availability requirements.
LORA applies to all equipment life cycle phases including research and development, systems acquisition, operations & support, and modification.
Applicable industries include, but are not limited to, Aerospace & Defense, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Food Processing, Chemical Processing, Mining, Facilities, Weapon Systems, Agriculture, Alternative Energy, Energy Distribution, and Power Generation.
Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) aims to minimize life-cycle costs through optimized maintenance, repair, and obsolescence
LORA helps supportability and logistics engineers plan for optimal repair decisions tiered layers of systems, assemblies, and sub-assemblies in complex support environments that include multiple levels of maintenance capability such as field maintenance, centralized repair, depot repair, and vendor/OEM shops. Considerations for Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) include the cost of equipment to analyze component operations/repairs, the skill level of staff in assessing and repairing equipment, warehousing of parts, transportation time and costs, and operational facilities to complete repairs and testing. The LORA process sometimes finds that repairing a part may cost hundreds of times the replacement cost when the all costs of repair are considered, making equipment far costlier to repair than discard.
Learn the principles used to implement and improve cost-effective maintenance programs with a logical and comprehensive SAE AS1390 compliant LORA process.
Types of LORA Training
Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) is a comprehensive introductory course covering the process of LORA, its benefits, limitations, and optimal implementation. The preliminary course introduces broad concepts of Supportability Analysis and identifies options for location of maintenance including combinations of levels to achieve maximum cost-effectiveness. The outcome is a systemic maintenance program that prioritizes up-time and efficiency at the lowest cost.

LORA Training 101
Fundamentals of Level of Repair Analysis
An introduction to the Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) process as it is applied for use in a Supportability Analysis. LORA is a process used to determine if corrective maintenance items should be repaired or discarded and at which maintenance level this should occur.
The course provides instruction and practical application in performing LORA along with instruction on when a LORA should be performed within the life-cycle of a program. Intended for anyone performing LORA in support of Product Support Analysis (PSA).
