ILS-INC is a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
ILS-INC engineers evaluate the probability that an item will be in an operable state when called into use at an unknown or random time. Availability calculations are performed utilizing reliability data entered into Relex, which also serves as the basis for other Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) fields, such as maintainability analyses.
The combination of Reliability and Maintainability statistics is used to calculate the initial availability predictions. Other factors are often added to the equation as the design matures. Availability predictions are useful in conducting trade-off analyses of different system design and maintenance concepts.
Availability can be statistically measured in terms of the percentage of time, when under operating conditions, an item is actually available to perform its mission. Normally calculated in year-long periods, these statistics can be used as an indicator of how well an item is actually performing and how support organizations are sustaining the system.
