Abstract:

The Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC Analysis Center at Fort Leavenworth Study and Analysis Center TRAC-FLVN SAC tasked the TRADOC Analysis Center at Fort Lee TRAC-LEE Vector-in-Commander VIC team to conduct an analysis of the Combat Service Support CSS portrayed in Southwest Asia CorpsDivision Scenario 7.0 SWA CDS 7.0. TRAC-LEE used VIC analysis to provide quantitative analysis of the effectiveness of the CSS during that scenario. The dynamic gaming with the VIC model is based on the SWA CDS 7.0 scenario with a total duration of 48 hours incremented in four-hour time periods TP and one-hour reorder cycle time between CSS units. The modeled force consists of three armor brigades with corps support, one Marine Expeditionary Force MEF landing brigade, one Marine regimental landing team, and allied Kuwaiti and Saudi forces. The analysis focuses first on those key maneuver resources necessary for a unit to perform its designated mission. The specific resources addressed are weapon system availability and the timely availability of supplies. Secondly, various aspects of the CSS system are examined to isolate bottlenecks or shortages, which limit the provision of needed services. And conversely, excesses or under-utilized CSS resources are identified for this scenario. The analysis entails three major areas maintenance, medical, and supply support.
