The purpose of this report is to provide a survey of research problems in command logistics which are based on a judgment that emphasizes those problems believed very significantly important to naval strategic andor tactical consider ations and hence, particularly pertinent to the Command and Control System context. This survey does not deal solely with problems involving large aggregations of items and military units. It includes problems which deal with detailed line items but only if they significantly and directly relate to the fleet and its strategic and tactical uses, e.g., the determination of de tailed line item requirements for a specific ship to be engaged in a particular mission. It must not be overlooked that problems of detailed line item planning frequently must be related to those problems utilizing larger aggregations and indeed, a very difficult problem in logistics planning is the aggregation problem. This pertains to procedures for aggregaetailed units while maintaining proper scalar relationships and conversely, deconsolidating large aggregations. Author
