A baseline analysis of in-transit shipping time into and through the Fifth Fleet area of operation with respect to the supply chain last nautical mile
MetadataShow full item record
In FY 2010, the Defense (DoD) spent more than $210 Billion on supply chain management. However, the Government Accountability Office has identified DoD supply chain management as a high-risk area, specifically forecasting, asset visibility, and materiel distribution. Additionally, the DoD has not developed the means to measure the effectiveness of implemented actions or defined root causes as they pertain to the warfighter. The purpose of this study is to examine current supply chain practices and procedures within the the Navy (DoN). The goal is to provide a baseline for comparing the in-transit shipping times of three shipping priority categories to identify potential problem areas within the DoN logistics network, specifically within the Fifth Fleet area of operation (AOR). Identifying potential weaknesses within the supply chain provides suggestions for further study to best identify cost effective ways to improve material movement, processes, and to increase the readiness of the warfighter.
