Abstract
Logistics functions within the military can be viewed as similar in operation to finished goods distribution within major manufacturing concerns. Based upon research conducted within the distribution departments of selected major manufacturing concerns, this thesis contains a predictive model created from an observed relationship between finished goods distribution and military logistics. Utilizing a descriptive format, this model is established through four major areas of comparison. First, financial aspects and cost-benefit analysis toward an economic utilization of all resources prevades the analogue. Second, material movement designs or processes are presented toward answering the question of how a manager can go into an organization with a critical eye at how better to perform his function. Third, the often under-emphasized area of human resources utilization also contributes significantly to the model's evolution. Fourth, concluding the analogue is a discussion of the interface of data processing, MIS, and evaluation aspects of the process.
