Abstract:

During FY 87, the Studies, Concepts, and Analysis Division, Logistics Directorate, OJCS, contracted with the Systems Research and Applications SRA Corporation to examine the ability of the Services and the Defense Logistics Agency DLA to apply Joint Strategic Capabilities Plan JSCP materiel apportionment guidance during deliberate planning, and to allocate material in accordance with JCS guidance during execution. SRA developed a technical report, the Joint Materiel Apportionment and Allocation Study JMASS, that provides an overview of current and proposed Service logistics systems and also provides an assessment of capabilities to support apportionment and allocation. The report findings reveal that the Services and DLA would encounter significant difficulty in implementing current JCS apportionment guidance to effect materiel allocation during execution. Keywords Logistics, Apportionment, Allocation, Supply, Material.
