The Marines and the DLA have been working on a series of projects to improve the flow of clothing through the supply chain, reduce inventory, and reduce the number of stockouts and back-orders that occur at the recruit centers. One of these projects, funded by the DLA, has been the development of a 3-D body scanner to replace hand measurement. With the 3-D scanner ready for prove-out, MCRD-SD agreed to use the scanner on a trial basis. The DLA asked LMI to conduct an operational and economic analysis of the proposed 3-D body scanner at the MCRD-SD. This report, which is the first of three, presents an operational baseline of the recruit dress clothing issuance process with and without the proposed 3-D body scanner. We describe the recruit dress clothing issuance process and provide data on the speed and accuracy of the process with and without the scanner.
