This report outlines a planning system, called MOBNET, for estimating the materiel requirements to support a mobilization of the United States Army. MOBNET estimates the mobilization needs for ammunition Class V and equipment Class VII procured through the staff of the Army Materiel Command. It examines the full spectrum of potential Claimants, to include current, expanded, and non- U.S. forces, and forces assigned to activities within the continental United States and to other military services. The framework for the entire system is displayed in 13 charts which make up Annex A of this report. Although the system is complex, it is not complicated. The charts provide a management tool for implementing MOBNET. They show the relationships between various decision support system and data bases identified as MOBNET components. This information will help coordinate the development of the components. MOBNET will require several years to develop and represents a considerable investment of resources. The result will be a methodology for estimating defendable requirements to sustain a conventional war.
