This Note describes the Army's conventional munitions acquisition process from the generation of the estimate of the requirements for munitions to the decisions on what mix of munitions will actually be funded. Particular emphasis is placed on the description of the models used by the U.S. Army Concepts Analysis Agency to estimate the conventional munitions war reserve resupply requirements, which......

Army units must be ready to deploy rapidly in the event of a contingency. Army Prepositioned Stock (APS) is designed to relieve the initial strain on the supply chain by reducing early airlift requirements and by meeting contingency demands until the production base can respond. The sustainment stock portion of APS is called war reserve secondary items (WRSI). Historically, WRSI requirements have ......

This article explains how the Army has been able to achieve historically high levels of performance in its tactical inventories of repair parts by applying a series of RAND-developed process and algorithm improvements. The Army’s tactical inventories are stored in mobile mini-distribution centers called Supply Support Activities that are part of each brigade-sized unit. Each SSA stocks repai......

For shipping supplies to sustain troops overseas, airlift or sealift can be used with differential speed and cost. This documented briefing lays out a construct for designing a distribution network that takes advantage of the two transportation modes' respective strengths to meet combatant command needs while minimizing total supply chain costs. In doing so, it provides recommendations for when an......

This report is concerned with the methods the services use to determine their conventional munitions requirements (point estimates of the quantities of munitions the services would buy to arm their planned forces given sufficient funds). The authors summarize the services' requirements processes, noting significant differences in the ways the four services approach munitions requirements estimatio......

The major combat operations of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have been judged from virtually all quarters as a remarkable success, although accompanied by some perceptions that this success was achieved in the face of severe logistics problems. This monograph describes how Army forces were sustained during Operation Iraqi Freedom, examines how well this support performed, and discusses the effects......
