The logistic system concept and foreign military sales, U.S. Navy - Royal Norwegian Navy.
MetadataShow full item record
A conceptual framework for a logistic system is developed. The functional activities within the logistic system, their relationship to each other, and how they should be managed is described. The existing organization for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) in the Royal Norwegian Navy and the U.S. Navy is identified, including an example of a typical FMS transaction. An evaluation of the FMS system is made, partly based on the conceptual model of a logistic system developed earlier. The evaluation is also based on gathered information and the author's personal experience with FMS. It is concluded that there is a good fit between the existing FMS organization and the theoretical logistical model. Areas of special concern are identified to be order processing, communications, transportation and training of individuals in the customer's FMS organization.
