Abstract:

The study examines a variety of critical problems affecting the management of industrial plant equipment under the control of the US Army Materiel Command. A study team addressed this problem by identifying the criticisms made over a span of several years by various Government auditing activities associating these criticisms with specific underlying problem areas determining priority as to the sequence in which these problems should be resolved and proposing specific system changes to effect solutions for problems with the higher priorities. The report documents how this was done and contains a series of proposed system changes which are noteworthy not only for their definitiveness and clarity of presentation, but also for the fact that they encompass organizational levels from the Department of Defense down to individual operating activities within the US Army Materiel Command.
