The paper provides a basis for developing analytical methods to estimate resource requirements in Program 7 of the Armys Five Year Defense Program. Program 7, Central Supply and Maintenance, consists of the centrally managed Army wholesale or depot-type logistic operations as opposed to the Command or unit level supply and maintenance activities organic to combat and support organizations in the field. The paper discusses the institutional framework and management systems employed by the Army to perform the central logistic support mission. Current Army systems for estimating central supply and maintenance requirements are examined in detail. Army studies on aggregate methods to estimate these requirements for planning purposes are also considered.
