Abstract:

Previous research for the Logistics Directorate J4 of the Joint Staff JS found that although the JSJ4 uses mobility models in several distinctly different types of analyses, it usually uses only a single, specialized type of model, a type that is inappropriate for many of the JSs more important analyses Schank, Mattock et al., 1991. In general, the typical military mobility analysis includes information about cargoes the location of what needs to be moved, when it will be available to move, and when it has to be delivered, about the transport network distances, throughput capacities, roadbed conditions, right-of-way constraints, etc., and about transport assets the number and type of available vehicles, structures, and equipment, and the schedules and costs under which additional or newer types can be procured. Depending on the problem or operation under consideration, these components are grouped and analyzed three different ways.
