Abstract:

The Defense Logistics Agencys DLA Weapons Systems Support Program was established to enhance the Military Departments weapons systems readiness and sustainability by providing enhanced supply support levels for DLA managed items with weapons systems applications. The weapons systems included in the Weapons Systems Support Program and the essentiality of the DLA managed items are identified by the Military Departments. Based on that data, DLA assigns a weapons system indicator code to each item. The assigned weapons systems indicator code determines the level of intensified management to be applied by DLA managers. As of December 1993, DLA managed about 3.5 million items, including about 1.9 million items in the program identified as supporting 1,403 weapons systems or systems components. Of the 1.9 million items, about 762,000 39 percent were assigned the 3 highest weapons systems indicator codes.
