Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to review and evaluate manpower aspects of Integrated Logistics Support ILS. Manpower authorizations are a critical resource, and the basis for personnel procurement, distribution and training. The nature of the manpower problem is described in terms of five situations where manpower problems could or did effect system deployments. The current manpower planning system is then described and evaluated for specific provisions guarding against the cited problems. The study finds significant disconnects between the system developer and the Major Army Command MACOM logistician, and between the command logistician and the command force developer. Specific recommendations are offered for relevant regulations, including AR 70-17 add MACOM planning input AR 700-127 specify MACOM planning requirement, upgrade pre-deployment assessments, and add a post-deployment assessment program and AR 310-49-1 clarify procedures for manpower planning and documentation. The study may serve as a reference for manpower planners and logisticians in program offices and field command staffs. Author
