JELO: a model of joint expeditionary logistics operations
Schrady, David A.
MetadataShow full item record
JELO is an Excel spreadsheet model of joint expeditionary logistics operations and allows end-to-end analysis of the options for closing forces from CONUS, through the sea base, to objectives ashore. Sustainment operations are included. The model is flexible and, while the examples in the report involve the 2015 Marine Expeditionary Brigade, all model parameters may be user specified. The MPF(F) is the subject of current discussion and analysis to determine what its capabilities and capacities need to be. Additionally, there are potentially other platforms to build in order to make Sea Basing a reality-high-speed connectors, assault connectors, and rapid strategic lift ships. JELO can be of use in evaluating the alternatives.
