It maintains the levels of performance agreed with Customer 2 and carries out approved upgrades or improvements, refits or acquisition increments.

Initial Gate. A relatively low approval hurdle, between the Concept and Assessment Phases of the CADMID procurement phases, intended to encourage early and full exploration of a wide range of options for meeting a particular capability. A Business Case at Initial Gate should confirm that there is a well-constructed plan for the Assessment Phase that gives reasonable confidence that there are flexible solutions within the performance, cost and time envelope the Central Customer has proposed. Approval at Initial Gate conveys no commitment on the Central Customer or the approving authorities to a project proceeding to or beyond Main Gate.

Initial Provisioning (IP). IP comprises assessing the range of spares required to meet the Availability requirements, the quantity needed to support the main equipment in the early period of service, Initial Support equipment, and the placing of firm contracts for these items. IP is also required for the introduction of modifications throughout the life of an equipment. The main IP phase continues until sufficient data is available to reprovision; it is normally for about the first 2 years of Service operation.

Its main tasks include developing the SRD, devising equipment solutions to meet that requirement, and managing the procurement and in-service support of the equipment. The Smart Procurement IPT is characterised by its 'cradle to grave' responsibility, its inclusion of all the skills necessary to manage its project, and its effective and empowered leader.

IPT Leader. The person with overall responsibility for the IPT, and the line manager of all its core members. The IPT leader may have an extensive background in any one or more of the core IPT membership areas and, if chosen from within the MOD, will be a suitably qualified member of the Acquisition Stream. To succeed, he or she will need to have strong leadership and management skills and the desire to achieve results beyond what is currently accepted as the 'norm'.

Key Equipment. A key equipment is a system or item of equipment which is essential for operations and for which availability must be maintained. With large, complex equipment, it is probable that surging to meet realistic emergency timescales will be difficult to achieve. In such instances, major sub assemblies should be considered key equipments and the methodology applied on that basis.

Level of Repair Analysis (LORA. A systematic procedure to determine the cost of alternative maintenance options, taking into account such variables as spares support, ground equipment and manpower cost.

Life Cycle Cost (LCC). LCC is made up from the costs reflecting not only the acquisition and development costs but also the operational and support costs throughout the life of the equipment. It is not possible to give an accurate mathematical definition as these vary between life cycle models. However, agreement of the definition of a particular model to be used in calculating LCC should be agreed by all parties before accepting the results.

Life Limited Item. An item that has a limited and predictable useful life and could be considered for replacement on a pre-planned basis for reliability, safety or economic reasons.

Life-Profile. A time-phased description of the events and environments an item experiences from manufacture to final expenditures or removal from the operation inventory, to include one or more mission profiles.

Logical Software Function. A process in the system functional breakdown, which has been identified as a candidate for implementation, either partially or wholly, in software.

Logistic Support Date (LSD). The date from which logistic support will be required by the user.

Long Lead Time Items. Materials or component parts of an equipment which, because of the time taken to procure them, need to be ordered in advance of the main item in order to meet a stated delivery date for the main item.

LSA. The selective application of scientific and engineering analyses, during the system engineering and design process to assist in complying with supportability and other ILS objectives.

LSAR. That portion of LSA documentation consisting of detailed data pertaining to the identification of logistic support resource requirements of an equipment.

A Business Case at Main Gate should recommend a single technical and procurement option. Risk must have been reduced to the extent that the Capability Manager and IPT Leader can, with a high degree of confidence, undertake to deliver the project to narrowly defined performance, cost (whole-life and procurement) and time parameters. The means to resolve potential industrial or collaborative issues must have been determined by Main Gate. The parameters agreed at Main Gate will be those used for external reporting and performance measurement with the Treasury and the National Audit Office (NAO).

A comprehensive management and technical effort to assure total system effectiveness by continuous integration into materiel development and procurement of all relevant information concerning manpower, personnel, training, human factors engineering, system safety and health hazards. Therefore, it is the recognition of the capabilities and limitations of the personnel who operate, maintain and support a equipment, making this an important consideration when designing or selecting hardware. MANPRINT achieves this objective by focusing attention on user performance as an integral part of total system performance and emphasizing front end planning to achieve an optimum user material system balance during the procurement process.

Manufacture Phase. The fourth phase of six, within the CADMID procurement phases, where the IPT delivers the solution to the military requirement, completing system development and production. The Capability Manager conducts Systems Acceptance. The transfer of the line management of the IPT to the DLO and of the customer function from Central Customer to Customer 2 takes place.
