This documented briefing provides a baseline measurement of current Marine repair cycle times RCT and order and ship times OST, the latter including both retail and wholesale support. Its primary goal is to provide USMC leaders with the information they need to evaluate recent Marine logistics response times LRT and to assess the need for improvement. A secondary goal is to help the Marine Corps understand the capabilities and limitations of its current data systems. An early version of this briefing was originally presented to the quarterly meeting of the Marine Corps logistics generals, at Camp Lejeune, NC, on November 19, 1996. To measure logistics response times, it is important to define each logistics process and the subprocesses that comprise it. We measured logistics response times for three processes - on-base repair, order and ship from retail supplies, and order and ship from wholesale supplies.
