Abstract:

An analysis of supply Class 9 and maintenance performance measures and objectives at direct support DS and general support GS units is reported on herein. Visits were made to several CONUS and USAREUR units and data on operations were obtained. These data were used in simulation models and other analytic devices to assure internal consistency of various measures and to assess their relative contributions to overall unit performance. DSGS operations were evaluated in terms of mission--the support of troop units. Accordingly, measures and objectives ranked by relative importance are recommended for the supply and maintenance functions. The effects of higher echelon policy on the supply effectiveness of the support unit were explored and quantified. Some thirty measures are discussed data, sources and analytic rationale are presented.
