A major objective in the development of new systems is to fulfil customer requirements in a cost‐effective manner. Cost‐effectiveness relates to the measure of a system in terms of mission fulfilment (the degree to which it performs its intended function) and total life‐cycle cost. Experience has indicated that these factors are significantly influenced by logistics. Implementation of the concept of Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) is essential in order to ensure a cost‐effective product output. The relationships between ILS and cost‐effectiveness are discussed.
