Abstract:

The Apparel Research Network ARN is a consortium, sponsored by the Defense Logistics Agency DLA, whose purpose is to improve costs lead-times and quality in the design production and distribution of defense clothing. DLA engaged the Logistics Management Institute to quantitatively describe the defense clothing business in order to support the direction and conduct of ARN research. In Volume I, we present a consolidated statement of costs for that business. We also provide lead-time statistics, focusing on logistics response time, and we discuss quality issues. In Volume II, we perform a costbenefit analysis of the proposed ARN research program.
