In recognition of a changed world, Congress and the American people are reducing Department of Defense DoD Budgets. If we are to maintain a flexible and powerful force of the future, doing business smarter for less cost is essential. Changing the way we manage supply inventories is one way DoD has chosen to save money. The primary direction we are moving involves positioning supply material at centralized DoD depots while reducing or eliminating inventories located near the customer. The major conclusion of my paper is that inventory policy changes are working with minimum effect on readiness. That doesnt mean the fleet hasnt noticed a change or that the future portends the same levels of readiness. Also, now is the time to take full advantage of modern technology and make additional improvements to the logistics system with enhanced transportation and information systems.
