Abstract:

Successful industrial mobilization is recognized as fundamental to the success of a military mobilization. The U.S.s present system for allocation of raw materials and component parts is the Defense Priorities and Allocation System DPAS. DPAS represents a major mechanism for industrial mobilization. Its success or failure to meet mobilization requirements is an excellent gauge for overall industry-military performance in a mobilization. Through a review of current regulations and procedures, a study of past industrial mobilizations in wartime and of recent mobilization exercises, this study demonstrates that DPAS can adequately allocate limited resources during mobilization if the critical materials requirements are updated and if thorough and pre-legislated planning is enacted.
