Abstract:

The U.S. military logistics management process has a difficult challenge in supporting the war fighter in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment. In response to this challenge, each Service has created a diverse and intricate logistical system that meets the specific Services obligation to support the fight and the war fighter. Service-centric requirements for logistical support have led to multiple variations and some commonalities in logistics management procedures. In a Joint environment, these logistics management processes must converge to allow for common support for the fighting force. This paper will show that the U.S. military must take a joint approach to establish a focused logistics process that provides for the varied Service logistical functions.
