ABSTRACT

Defense Science Board Task Force on Logistics Transformation Phase II   [open pdf - 240KB]

The 1998 Logistics Transformation study emphasized the critical, indeed fundamental, importance of logistics to the success of U.S. military operations. It noted that an artificial dichotomy exists between operations and logistics and that this dichotomy threatens to undermine DoD's planned revolution in military affairs (RMA). It also noted that a properly reformed logistics system would reduce a CINC's operational footprint, cost less money, and effectively support U.S. military strategy. The Phase II study reviewed the issues raised two years earlier, calling attention to both the durable nature of the problem and the vital need to transform the system
