  Integrated Logistics Support 

Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) is the disciplined and unified management of the technical logistic disciplines that plan and develop Logistics Support Requirements for military forces and which will ensure System product Quality in terms of reliability, availability, maintainability and testability. In general, this means that ILS is the management organization that plans and directs the activities of many technical disciplines associated with the identification and development of logistics support and system RAMT/S requirements for military systems or equipment and parts.

ILS is a technique introduced by the US Army to ensure that the supportability of an equipment item is considered during its design and development. The technique was adopted by the UK MOD in 1993 and made compulsory for the procurement of the majority of MOD equipment.

The end goal of ILS is to create systems that last longer and require less support and thereby to save money by achieving a higher return on long term investments. The aim of ILS is to address three aspects of supportability during the acquisition and whole life cycle of the system / equipment. The word system is here defined as: "The whole composite of hardware, software, personnel, procedures, tools and facilities. The elements hereof are used together in the intended operational or support environment to perform a given task or achieve a specific purpose, support or mission requirement"
