The LORA Model

The Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) model, determines the most cost-effective maintenance policy for each replaceable unit of a piece of equipment. LORA examines the costs of labor, training, contractor repair, transportation, inventory, and documentation for every disassembly and repair option possible within the specified capability of the Maintenance Organization. After making the initial repair versus discard decision, LORA will select the optimal location for repair of the defective unit.
