Title 10 Armed Forces, United States Code, section 3062, requires that the Army be organized, trained, and equipped for prompt and sustained land combat. The doctrine in FM 100-11 supports this statutory requirement. Events of the 1980s provided the impetus for the initial effort to document the Armys management of change doctrine. During this period, sweeping changes were taking place. AirLand Battle war fighting doctrine, Army of Excellence organizations, and over 400 new materiel systems including the Abrams tank, Bradley fighting vehicle, Blackhawk helicopter, Patriot air defense system, and multiple-launch rocket systems were introduced into the Army. The 1988 edition of FM 100-11 provided managers of change with the first comprehensive explanation of the functions and systems that are known collectively as the force integration process. In 1995, the description of this complex process was updated to reflect then current doctrine. This edition provides overviews of how the Army works as an institution and as an organization and briefly discusses our war-fighting doctrine. This manual then describes the force integration functions and systems that organize, structure, man, equip, train, sustain, station, and resource the force projection Army. Finally, this manual relates the force integration process to the maintenance of unit and force readiness during the introduction of change.
