The U.S. Army’s new supply chain management system aims to help troops survive the transition to an all-volunteer force
The Army is set to make changes to its supply chain leadership system to help prepare for a post-combat deployment where the military expects all troops to be armed with a new supply system.
The Army will be moving away from a rigid model that is geared toward making sure that the Army’s supply chain and logistics teams have the right resources, the Army has announced.
The Army is also moving away the “strategy and doctrine” framework that the previous leadership structure used to manage supply chains, said Lt.
Gen. William H. Gaddis, the chief of the Army Supply Chain Management Organization.
Rather, the new system will provide the Army with a comprehensive view of its supply systems and what they can do to ensure the success of a supply mission.
The system will allow for a more open and honest dialogue between the Army, its command and control and suppliers, and will provide an easier way for commanders to plan for the long-term future of supply systems.
The new system, called Supply Chain Integration and Integration Integration Capabilities, is set for public release on Thursday.
The goal is to be rolled out by July 1, with the new systems to be deployed by midsummer.
The plan is to make the system available to all service members in the Army as well as the National Guard, National Guard Reserves and reserve component organizations.
The new systems will be available for use by the entire Army in 2020, but it will not be ready to deploy to troops in 2020 until 2021, Gaddas said in a statement.
The changes will also help provide commanders with better information about the different types of equipment they need to provide to their troops, Gadgets 360 reported.
Currently, the most common equipment to supply to a troop is the rifle, but that can change, depending on the mission.
For example, the rifle could be replaced by a lighter or more agile machine gun, which can be more easily mounted on a vehicle or other equipment.
The rifle can also be replaced with a pistol, or vice versa.
The supply system will give commanders a better understanding of which types of weapons are best suited for each task, Gads said.
The current system was built in the 1980s, Gadding said.
It required the Army to develop a plan to determine how the supply system would work.
Gadding and Army officials also said that the current system could not meet the requirements of a combat deployment because of the nature of combat, such as the need to protect critical equipment and the threat of an insurgent attack.
Gads and other leaders have said that a new system could be deployed in 2020 or 2021, with an early-mission deployment.
The system will be more flexible than the current model because it will allow commanders to make adjustments that will improve the ability of troops to meet their requirements, Gadi Gaddans, the general in charge of the new Army system, told The Associated Press in a conference call.
It will also be more transparent and more easily understandable to all the military units, because the new supply management system will have a uniform format, Goggans said.
