Abstract : The study was conducted to develop an automated source of planning- related information for Army Staff logistics planners. The information provided is focused on the Total Army Analysis (TAA), the process by which the Army force structure is developed, including the elements of the force which provide logistics support. Four basic modules of information are included in the system: a description of the TAA process, a description of specific activities and procedures associated with the process, a discussion of two methods of analysis appropriate to issues arising during the process, and the identification of data reports available to support the analysis of logistics readiness of the programmed force elements. The system is implemented on a MS-DOS based microcomputer, using the 'Knowledge Pro' software tool.
