BILLABLE LABOR CATEGORY: Reliability, Maintainability, Logistic supportability, and Availability (RMLA) Analyst



  • Lead and perform Suitability Analysis for the program.
  • Responsible for suitability test planning, test execution, data collection, reduction and analysis, and reporting.
  • Ensure the reliability, maintainability, logistic supportability, and availability requirements are adequately addressed in the test and data collection plan.
  • Support Reliability Test Planning and Execution. Recommend sample sizes and test methods.
  • Support Maintainability Test Planning and Execution. Including planning and coordination for maintenance demonstrations, as applicable.
  • Support Logistic supportability Test Planning and Execution. Coordinate with NAVSUP as required. Review and provide feedback on the Program Life Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP).
  • Support Availability Test Planning and Execution.
  • Review the system and subsystem design documents to ensure RMLA requirements are understood and incorporated into the test plan. Propose test methods and definitions to support the suitability evaluation.
  • Analyze engineering documents to develop an understanding of the interfaces of the components and failure modes.
  • Document failure definition and scoring criteria to support the suitability analysis for the system under test. Including developing the purposes of Essential Function Failures and Operational Mission Failures.
  • Propose statistical analysis techniques for the RMLA requirements and document them in the data analysis plan.
  • Collaborate with engineering and project management to plan, coordinate, and execute all RMLA work required to conduct system and subsystem suitability testing.
  • Coordinate, perform, and execute all tasks required to achieve the project RMLA milestones: project RMLA Plan, reliability prediction analysis, maintainability, and availability analysis, as well as logistics assessment.
  • Maintain RMLA Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to visually convey system operational suitability status against the established project and test schedule.
  • Attend Failure Review Board (FRB) meetings and review root cause analysis findings, when applicable.
  • Analyze projected system and subsystem utilization and calculate the cumulative effect of individual component reliabilities on final system reliability.
  • Observe the conduct of tests to document and evaluate suitability factors, such as numbers and causes of unit failures, utilization time, downtime, number of maintenance actions, and maintenance times.
  • Document and compile failure data generated during the test. Compile and analyze this data set to evaluate the system’s suitability against the requirements.
  • Conduct post-test data analysis with appropriate statistics and document in the data analysis summary.
  • Review failure modes to identify components posing excessive failure risks.
  • Advise and confer with test directors and engineers in meetings to present suitability findings and recommendations.
  • Possess experience with aircraft systems and subsystems, Reliability Block Diagrams, System Reliability Assessments, Component Reliability Predictions, System interface diagrams, and relevant software tools.
  • Have experience with USMC maintenance action forms and maintenance systems such as Naval Aviation Logistics Command Management Information System (NALCOMIS), OOMA, CAMEO, Deckplate, etc.
  • Holds experience with Configuration Management and Version Control Tools.


Experience: 6 years of directly related experience (including internships) providing Functional Responsibility related job services.


Education: Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Computer Science, or other related scientific or technical disciplines.
