A dynamic distribution model for combat logistics
Gue, Kevin R.
MetadataShow full item record
New warfare doctrine for the U.S. Marine Corps emphasizes small, highly mobile forces supported from the sea, rather than from large, land based supply points. The goal of logistics planners is to support these forces with as little inventory on land as possible. We show how to configure the land based distribution system over time to support a given battle plan with minimum inventory. Logistics planners could use the model to support tactical or operational decision making.
