Planning for Surge Logistics. Logistics plans will be modified to reflect surge logistics needs
for specific unusual missions.
Integrated Project Management. Individual logistics projects will be planned, managed, and
Configuration Control. Alteration and change will be managed by a configuration control
process which considers all aspects of ILS during each phase of the life cycle.
Platform and Equipment/Systems Management. Platform and equipment/systems
management will centralize logistics support planning. Planning and implementing
configuration changes for a platform or major common system will be managed over its life
cycle. Usage aberrations will be detected and corrective actions taken to reduce costs.
Support Manager Each platform will have a designated support manager which will serve as
the single point of contact for access to the logistics infrastructure. An appropriate
infrastructure shall be established to provide logistics support for each platform. The types of
service a platform may receive are: procurement, material receipt, material staging, retail
inventory management, parts expediting, transportation, maintenance assistance,
maintenance augmentation, maintenance shop services, port services, line services,
consolidated spares, material inspection, quality assurance, etc. As the logistics support
infrastructure is being developed, the number of customer points of contact shall be
minimized, the goal being a single point of contact for each platform.
The Support Manager will facilitate requests for and delivery of logistics services. Platforms
will have direct access to the logistics infrastructure whenever they deem such access is
appropriate. Logistics requirements will be accommodated at the lowest organizational level
where the capability exists to provide same.
Logistics Management. Logistics Management at the platform level will be centralized. The
delivery of logistics services will be structured so as to minimize redundancy when services
several platforms within a common geographic or functional area.
Standard Customer Interface. The logistics system will have a uniform look and feel that
does not vary by platform, equipment, unit type, or geographic location. This will be
accomplished through standard, integrated policies, business practices, and information
systems, which will not vary with platform design or mission.
Logistics Management Development. There will be post graduate education in logistics
management, and post graduate education in other specific disciplines will emphasize
