Abstract:

The United States Militarys theater level distribution management system is analyzed for adequacy and efficiency through a review of the current system. In addition, the realities of todays shrinking force structure and the roles of host nation support and information management systems are considered. In order to maximize efficiency within the distribution management system it is important that more specific doctrine governing theater level distribution be developed, that unity of effort through jointness be emphasized, that there be widespread understanding of the system throughout the chain of command, and that computerized distribution system management and information systems be universally compatible. The decreasing size of the United States Armed Forces and the move toward consolidation of the remaining forces in the continental United States have a critical impact on the theater level distribution system. Combat units should arrive in theater fully ready to fight and be self sufficient for some initial period.
