The Joint Chiefs of Staff are concerned about the military's ability to deter enemy action and counter enemy forces. In an effort to assess capabilities and have a basis for apportioning necessary items, the Unified Commands were asked to identify critical items. This paper looks at the various methods the Navy uses to determine critical items with the objective of finding a consistent method for critical item determination. Based on the results of research, the validity of existing programs used in critical item identification could improve if there was more communication between the Fleet Commander in Chief and his Type Commanders and Navy Supply Systems Command. Better communication would also make model results available to all for use in planning.
