Abstract:

The following conclusions were among those drawn regarding logistics planning. a There are wide differences of opinion among Air Force logistics planners as to what planning is, b More time and attention should be devoted to evaluation of the planning process and to the testing of plans before full acceptance and implementation, c Concurrency of planning at different levels generally results in better plans and greater confidence in their successful execution, d A better planning product will result from a more careful selection of planners, integration of logistics and operations planning groups, and the location of all planners working on the same problem in the same or adjacent offices, e The concept of a Master Plan of Logistics included offers a means for accomplishing improved logistics planning in the USAF, and f The USAF should develop a concept of logistics planning that would provide top management a blueprint of activity for long range uses. Such a concept is in consonance with a philosophy of planning being circulated in many areas of the government by the present administration. Author
