The research described in this report is part of a larger study of the capabilities of the lower tiers of the defense industrial base. Part of this study--dealing with the adequacy of industry for the peacetime needs of the Department of Defense--has already been completed. The study was extended to include an evaluation of industrial capability under conditions of a surge in military demand. This report describes the methodological underpinnings and results of an analysis of the interdependencies of U.S. industry under surge conditions. It supports a companion report that assesses surge needs, evaluates the requirements for industrial activity, reviews identifiable or potential vulnerabilities, and discusses remedial options.
