Product Support Analysis

The standard for excellence
Live • Immersive • Comprehensive

What is PSA Training?

Product Support Analysis (PSA) training teaches a systems-engineering process to identify resources required to develop the logistical support systems to complete operational and maintenance tasks to maintain equipment.

PSA influences the design of complex systems to reduce ownership costs and finds cost-effective alternatives to maintain systems and equipment. PSA is a successor of Logistic Support Analysis (LSA)1.

Applicable industries include, but are not limited to: Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Food Processing, Chemical Processing, Mining, Facilities, Weapon Systems, Aerospace, Agriculture, Alternative Energy,
Energy Distribution, and Power Generation.

The Goal

Product Support Analysis (PSA) provides a structured approach to increasing the efficiency of and reducing the costs of systems and equipment.

SAE-AS 1390 (Government Electronics and Information Technology Association)

The technical standard: Product Support Analysis (PSA)

Developed to replace the LSA process outlined in MIL-STD-1388, GEIA-STD-0007 covers Logistics Product Data

What You Will Learn:

  • Understanding of PSA disciplines as they relate to the five phases of the Defense Acquisition Management System (DoD Instruction 5000)
  • Applications for life cycle management processes to acquired systems, equipment, and physical assets
  • Supportability processes for in-service systems
  • Concepts, principles and current reference standards which guide PSA and Logistics Product Data (LPD)
  • Optimizing the mix of product support resources for dynamic scheduling of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance

TYPES OF PSA TRAINING

PSA training is a cumulative process beginning with an overview introduction for all team members involved in PSA processes and ending in advanced concepts such as proposed values and measurements in Performance Based Logistics agreements. The PSA course offerings reflect the tiered needs of learners at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

HISTORY OF PSA

PSA (Product Support Analysis) arose from LSA (Logistics Support Analysis) which was codified in 1973 with military standard MIL-STD-1388-1. LSA guidelines were further established in the DoD (Department of Defense) Instruction 5000.2 on major system acquisition procedures and DoD Directive 5000.39 on the acquisition and management of integrated logistic support (ILS) for systems and equipment.

In 1996 after being downgraded from a standard to a best practice, MIL-STD-1388 was cancelled and several civilian initiatives took its place.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) introduced GEIA-STD-0007 in 2007.
