Abstract:

Until just a few years ago no organization was tasked with measuring overall effectiveness design or optimization of DODs global supply chain management system. As a result, the Strategic Distribution Management Initiative SDMI was created as a joint venture between Defense Logistics Agency DLA and the United States Transportation Command USTRANSCOM charged with enterprise level redesign, streamlining, and optimization of the DOD global supply chain. This thesis examines the affects of the SDMI implementation on the Armys two maneuver divisions stationed in Europe. Specifically, it analyzes affects of SDMI implementation on the eight supply support activities located within the two maneuver divisions in USAREUR.
