Technological advance has made the task of logistics planning simultaneously more difficult and more critical, since rapid expansion requires a highly developed capability to be selective. In military planning, correct choices are essential. This paper reports on a project which addressed the question, What logistic units, skills and materiel should the peacetime Army contain in order to perform its initial wartime missions and also to provide a base for rapid expansion to meet subsequent support requirements. Results involve equipment which is increasingly more complex and costly and skills which are more sophisticated and less available to the Army. The Delphi approach was appropriate for this study.
