LORA is an integral part of Logistic Support Analysis (MIL-STD-1388-1). LORA decisions influence the logistics support cost, total life cycle cost of ownership, and operational readiness of the hardware system. LORA decisions are based on economic and noneconomic considerations and readiness objectives. Furthermore, LORA recommendations for new materiel should be made as soon as the equipment preliminary design has been determined and updates as required throughout the life of the system.
