ABSTRACT

Evaluation of the DoD's Actions to Develop Interoperable Systems and Tools for Forecasting Logistics Demand Across the Joint Logistics Enterprise [redacted]   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Document: "The objective of this evaluation was to determine the extent to which the DoD took actions to develop interoperable systems and tools to forecast logistics demand for campaign planning across the Joint Logistics Enterprise (JLEnt). [...] According to Joint Publication 4-0, 'Joint Logistics,' logistics involves the 'planning and executing the movement and support of forces,' and joint logistics involves the use of two or more combatant commands or Military Departments' logistics resources to support the joint force. The DoD's JLEnt consists of logistics directorates across DoD Components and is structured to achieve a unity of effort without jeopardizing individual mission and goals. JLEnt logisticians use a variety of automated systems and tools, including information systems, decision support tools, and communications capabilities to perform functions such as forecasting logistic demands required to execute specific missions. For the purposes of our report, we defined 'forecasting demand for campaign planning' as a process to identify overall sustainment support that the joint force needs to accomplish its mission in the future"
