Abstract:

The operational availability of any equipment depends on its supply chain. In a tactical environment, logistics are complex and dynamic. If the elements of a supply chain are poorly integrated, supply can be unstable and inefficient. This study uses systems theory to understand how collaboration on logistics information affects the supply chains among companies and military organizations in a tactical operating environment. The paper reviews the literature and designs an experimentation campaign to address the suggested hypothesis. The experiment seeks to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the elements of a supply chain to increase the readiness of equipment in an operating environment.
