LHG is an innovator in technical data development and quality assurance.  Builder™  harnesses the power of our single purpose development and QA tools (Validator, DataMinerand Crosswalk) to accurately and rapidly develop Logistics Support Analysis Record (LSAR)-036 and LSAR-030, used to develop Repair Part and Special Tool List (RPSTL) parts manuals.  The automation and intelligence in Builder maximizes reuse of existing data. By avoiding the costs and errors associated with typical data re-creation, LHG provides significant cost reductions and accuracy improvements that lead to raising the value of deliverables.

Traditional processes require choosing between affordability, quick response, and the best quality resources. LHG’s Builder gives you all three.  We work on aggressive schedules without compromising quality.  Our delivery of ILS and IPS data is always on time and often early.  We adjust and adapt with great flexibility, with no threat to the integrity of the process.  This results in cost control and consistently better value than other industry methods.


Builder is a method of developing provisioning data and RPSTL Figures programmatically that includes receiving a maintenance allocation chart (MAC) and/or a bill of material (BOM).  It ensures that the provisioning data set and the BOM accurately identifies part and/or system information in a part provisioning data set, such as a 036 file.

LSAR-036 Builder programmatically performs the following subtasks:

  • Generates provisioning data sets to U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine requirements
  • Develops to 2-level and 4-level maintenance philosophy
  • Screens and programmatically incorporates provisioning data for National Stock Number (NSN) assignment
  • Incorporates engineering changes into existing provisioning data set and maintains baselines
  • Engineering changes are incorporated into LSAR-036
  • Builds top-down breakdown RPSTL
  • Ensures Indent structure
  • Generates LSAR-036

Builder™ complies with the basic Army system provisioning principles, objectives, policies, guidance, and responsibilities contained in AR 700-18 and is 100% compatibile with provisioning process center requirements such as U.S. Army’s Logistics Modernization Program (LMP).  AR 700-18 cites other regulations that provide information and guidance for the development of the documentation needed to support the provisioning process.  This includes the AR 70-1 for the system acquisition process, AR 700-127 for the supportability strategy, SAE-GEIA-STD-007-C (superseding document to MIL-PRF-49506) for the Logistics Management Items (LMI) and AR 25-30, DA PAM 25-40, MIL-STD-40051-1, and MIL-STD-40051-2 for RPSTL preparation, and S2000M and S1000D.
