Assessment of logistics effectiveness for expeditionary units
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this MBA project is to provide a critical review of Naval Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) logistics support processes. By tracing the MK-16 underwater breathing apparatus, a critical piece of hardware to the NECC explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) mission, through the complicated expeditionary logistics (EXLOG) supply chain, this report highlights areas of friction across various supply processes. These include inefficiencies related to IT network connectivity, redundancies in human data input processes, and shortcomings in the overall IT infrastructure, to include financial improvement and audit readiness (FIAR) compliance. Specifically, NECC inventory and logistics refers to the materials, equipment, activities, and resources needed to properly adhere to doctrine and execute required mission tasking. A review of current inventory and logistics processes provides a baseline and affords the opportunity to apply IT improvement recommendations, enabling a more robust quantitative analysis of EXLOG data.
