Abstract:

This report looks at Integrated Logistics Support ILS in the field support environment rather than from the more common viewpoint of the equipment development process. The author draws upon the field experience of experienced missile officers to describe how the ILS factors combine to create materiel readiness problems. Doctrine and organization are considered equally important problems affecting readiness and are added to the list of ILS items. Mission and Function Manuals from organizations in the wholesale support structure were studied to search ILS related tasks. The resulting survey of these support organizations points out that their functional orientation tends to block the complete flow of logistics intelligence from the field. An annex includes the selected function statements by organization and provides a useful source for continuing studies. Author
