Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to determine whether it was feasible to design software that compares logistics requirements to unit capabilities, recommends task organizations for logistical support, evaluates both the operational and tactical logistics functions, and produces both the personnel and logistics estimate. The end state for this research was Corps Support Command COSCOM Planner Version .01B. By incorporating existing logistical software into a Visual Basic for Applications Excel derivative, COSCOM Planner Version .01B answered the research question, is it possible, with a definitive yes. Decision matrix results indicated that COSCOM Planner Version .01B will be a useful tool for logisticians. Further usability testing and algorithm improvement is required to insure its survivability over the next several years.
