This MBA professional report explores the historical performance of the United States Marine Corps (USMC) War Reserve Materiel (WRM) Process Flow, specifically during the time building up to the initial invasion of Iraq (2003) in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Managed by USMC Logistics Command (LOGCOM), the ability of the WRM Program to rapidly deliver equipment and supplies in support of major contingency operations is critical to the given USMC mission. Using historical data from January through March 2003, this project is specifically focused on the processes and procedures that take place within LOGCOM to identify, procure, package and ship when an item is requested but not maintained in the WRM inventory. By conducting a process analysis and using computer modeling, our recommendations are focused on improving efficiency and reducing lead time in an effort to better support future contingencies.
