Velocity Management: The Business Paradigm That Has Transformed U.S. Army Logistics

Synopsis

Velocity management brings a new way of doing business to U.S. Army logistics, with a renewed focus on the army customer and a powerful approach for process improvement that cuts across three critical performance dimensions: time, quality and cost. The goal of velocity management is to reduce the need for massive logistics resources by increasing the speed and accuracy with which materials and information are delivered. Key logistics processes are defined, measured, and improved, continuously, so customers--army units in garrison and deployed worldwide--get what they need, when they need it and at minimal cost.
