Abstract

The purpose of military logistics is to ensure that the material elements of combat capability come together at the right place and time and in the right configuration to be useful to the supported commander. These material elements are constrained in both quantity and location. The usefulness of any element to a commander is dependent upon both its extrinsic (qualitative; situation dependent) and intrinsic (quantitative; inherent) characteristics. Our research provides a methodology for rationally assigning relative value to material resources over time, in order to improve the linkage between what arrives (becomes available for use) in theater at any given time, and what is actually needed at that time.
