The Navy Supply Corps delivers logistics to the Navy and joint warfighter through a broad range of capabilities, referred to as lines of operation, encompassing traditional logistics functions and valued business skills. The diverse skills give the Supply Corps a distinctive advantage as logistics officers. The purpose of this study is to examine the lines of operation to answer three research questions: What is a Supply Corps line of operation? What is the state of the current lines of operation? Where are there opportunities for improvements in the lines of operation? Logistics doctrine was compared, skill-coded billet distribution was analyzed, and promotion board preferences were examined. The findings supported the current categorization and billet distribution of lines of operation. However, there are a significant number of billets not aligned or coded to any skill, and some skills are highly desired by promotion boards but with little opportunity for experience. It is recommended that the Supply Corps examine the billet inventory to re-align or divest the numerous billets not aligned with a line of operation in order for the community to place and fully develop officers with the diverse professional skills required to effectively and efficiently support operations.
