Abstract : This monograph discusses the proposed transfer of organizational maintenance responsibility from maneuver units to the forward support battalion. The proposed transfer is a part of the battlefield maintenance system (BMS) doctrine currently under review by the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. The monograph includes a survey of the maintenance doctrine and practices of the British, Soviet, and German armies and attempts to draw conclusions about the efficacy of transferring maintenance responsibility out of maneuver units. The monograph organizes discussion about the impact of the proposed change in maintenance doctrine into sections governing the physical, moral, and cybernetic domains of battle.
