This thesis addresses the application of integrated logistic support (ILS) principles to Navy medical material programs, describes some of the factors affecting cost and organizational relationships, presents a survey of audit reports and interviews with medical material managers, and makes recommendation for improving the management and maintenance support of medical material and equipment. Conclusions indicate that ILS is both highly essential and viable. The author contends that the employment of matrix project techniques, an adequate management information system, and an administrative support organization coupled with the ILS system advocated by the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of the Navy (DON) will improvement the management and maintenance support of medical material and equipment programs.
