Logisticians will rely more and more on models to deal with the complexities of procuring, maintaining, and transporting military material, facilities, and personnel.This paper discusses, generally, past and current logistics models in several of these areas and points out:(1)The logistics support functions have been rich domains for model development and have been at the forefront of certain meth......

This report is a user's manual for the Logistics Decision Model (LDM), which was developed by the Performance-Oriented Logistics Assessment (POLA) project to help build the logistics portion of the Army five-year program. POLA estimates the effects on combat performance of alternative investments in logistics resources. LDM simulates the ways that Red and Blue combat forces are influenced by comba......

The objectives of this paper are to provide an overview of the TSAR and TSARINA simulation models, and to illustrate their application.These models were developed to provide a method to assess how airbase attacks would affect the capability of airbases to generate effective combat sorties, and to evaluate how a wide range of airbase improvement options could increase the combat capability of airba......

Attempts to characterize logistics systems as either supply-based or distribution-based logistics are misguided. Every logistics system must integrate supply and distribution to meet customer requirements, including risk considerations, while minimizing total supply-chain cost.The ideal logistics system for a given situation depends on process capabilities, resource costs, and item, demand, and cu......

Discusses points that the Department of Defense (DoD) should consider in deciding where to obtain the logistics services needed to support the force: DoD could significantly improve the performance of contractors by using new criteria to choose and reward them. Effective, continuing competition among potential sources should simplify efforts to contract for logistics services. Federal policy gover......

Velocity management is a concept for dramatically improving the responsiveness and efficiency of the Army logistics system. It aims to substitute velocity and accuracy for mass in the logistics system. Reducing the cycle time of logistics processes promises the possibility of greater system responsiveness to the user's needs while permitting reductions in the size of safety stocks or days-of-suppl......
