Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to provide the Army with advice on maintaining its operational capabilities while facing a draw-down and ongoing budgetary pressures. The study team developed five force re-balancing strategies that demonstrably saved 21,172 positions, or the equivalent of approximately 4.7 Brigade Combat Teams. The study team also made several recommendations for the Army to modernize and restructure its maintenance functions, from developing a data analytics capability that would drive efficiencies, to contracting various maintenance functions within the brigade and at higher echelons.
