Abstract:

By reducing the logistics footprint through the creation of an agile infrastructure, one of the six tenets of focused logistics, DOD anticipates having surplus funds that can be reprogrammed into other areas. This study investigates the potential effects an agile infrastructure will have on the Department of Defenses ability to perform its logistics mission in support of its fighting forces. It focusses on 1 commercial business practices, 2 outsourcing and privatization, 3 maintenance operations, and 4 right sized inventories. Due to the criticality of the cost savings to the success of Joint Vision 2010 the potential for saving money is emphasized.
