Aim

The aim of this unit is to develop the knowledge and skills needed to develop and apply an integrated logistics support programme.

Unit abstract

This unit will enable learners to develop and implement an integrated logistics support programme. Learners will look at the features of implementation and produce a structured representation of all tasks needed for the development and implementation stages.

The first learning outcome will enable learners to analyse and develop an integrated logistic (ILS) support programme. They will then go on to produce a work breakdown structure for the tasks required to achieve the ILS requirements.

Learners will also develop the techniques used to monitor an ILS and will apply risk management techniques to identify potential risks and recommend ways to mitigate them.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of this unit a learner will:

1       Be able to develop an integrated logistic support (ILS) programme

2       Be able to produce a work breakdown structure (WBS) for the tasks required to achieve an ILS programme

3       Be able to use techniques to monitor an ILS programme and a system of quality assurance

4       Be able to apply risk management techniques and recommend mitigating measures against an ILS programme.


Unit content

1      Be able to develop an integrated logistic support (ILS) programme

Integrated logistic support (ILS) programme: agreeing with customers the levels of accuracy, programme and schedules; preparing and structuring the programmes and schedules; identification of dependencies and restraints between starts and ends of activities; uncertainty; identification of demand-led resource allocation; use of simple computer-based planning tools


2      Be able to produce a work breakdown structure (WBS) for the tasks required to achieve an ILS programme

Key factors: confirming the ILS status; developing interfaces to other specialist areas; identifying deliverables; establishing procedures and responsibilities

Work breakdown structure (WBS): a structured representation of all tasks required to achieve the ILS requirements; WBS represented as charts, trees, lists, tables and can include ILS tasks, ILS management and ILS dependencies


3      Be able to use techniques to monitor an ILS programme and a system of quality assurance

Quality assurance system: a system to maintain standards to a previously agreed level; quality assurance achieved through document control, configuration management, document format and agreed standards

Monitoring techniques: the regular checking of specific activities or outcomes to ensure that they are being achieved according to requirements; monitoring eg observation, data collection, sampling, continuous, periodic, on demand, random, scheduled, formal, informal

4      Be able to apply risk management techniques and recommend mitigating measures against an ILS programme

Techniques of risk management: risk identification eg identifying sources of information to assemble risk data, risk register, maintaining risk records; risk assessment and evaluation eg assessing likelihood and severity, evaluating the impact; risk reduction; risk review

Measures of mitigation: undertaking the appropriate course of action including revisions, improvements, enhancements and reduction; compare different measures of mitigation in relationship to an ILS programme

Essential requirements

Centres will need to provide simulated or actual examples for the application of an ILS programme.

Employer engagement and vocational contexts

Industrial visits, work placements or employment could provide access to additional resource facilities and reinforce relevance.
