Abstract : This study was accomplished at the request of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Director of Logistics (J-4). The study is a part of two other studies to review the Industrial College of the Armed Forces (ICAF) Defense Industry Studies (DIS) for the J-4. Five of the fifteen Defense Industry Studies-- Railroads and Trucking, Medical, Fossil Fuels and Petrochemicals, Critical Materials, and Food and Textiles--are addressed in this paper. Five years of ICAF Defense Industry Studies from 1987 through 1991 form the basis of the analysis. The study includes the thrust of the DIS studies, observations on each of the five industries, recurring recommendations made in the ICAF studies, and recommended actions required to solve identified deficiencies and problem areas to ensure these industries maintain the capability to support the mission and needs of DoD.
