The United States Army is currently developing and testing Force 11, an attempt to redesign itself by the early years of the 21st Century to incorporate digital technology and advanced weaponry. In 1996, the United States Training and Doctrine Command mandated that all combat service support disciplines be automated to the greatest extent possible. Concurrently, the Deputy Chief of Staff for logistics, United States Materiel Command, and the Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM) developed a future strategic vision of seamless logistics support. To support this vision, CASCOM has proposed the implementation of the Integrated Combat Service Support System (ICS3) as the Army's single seamless combat service support management system. ICS3 will be a system of systems that automates the combat service support disciplines of man, arm, fuel, fix, move, and sustain. Specifically, the combat service support discipline of fuel will be incorporated in ICS3 as the Fuel Automated Subsystem. This thesis analyzes current Army petroleum operations, identifies petroleum accountability and management procedures as the target domain for automation, and develops the respective software system requirements. From the software system requirements, a prototype for the Fuel Automated Subsystem is successfully developed using the Computer Aided Prototyping System (CAPS) to illustrate the system's viability.
