Integrating the Department of Defense Supply Chain: Techincial Report

By Eric Peltz; Marc Robbins | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

First, we thank the Honorable Alan Estevez, ASD(L&MR), not only for sponsoring and supporting this project, but also for engaging in frank, constructive dialogue during in-progress review sessions that both helped shape the direction of and offered opportunities to provide input into other ongoing initiatives. Paul Peters, his Deputy for Supply Chain Integration, provided direct oversight and more frequent guidance along with ensuring tie-in to a policy review and other supply chain integration efforts such as a metrics review, both informing the study and enabling it to have impact during the course of the work. In conjunction, Lieutenant General (retired) Claude V. “Chris” Christianson, the Director of the Center for Joint & Strategic Logistics at the National Defense University, cosponsored the project and provided valuable red teaming and, along with his Vice Director, George Topic, helped synthesize ideas and coordinate meetings. In addition, research on Operation Iraqi Freedom logistics lessons learned sponsored by LTG Christianson when he was Deputy Chief of Staff, G-4, U.S. Army, informed this work and led to a number of related studies for both the Army and joint logistics organizations that further helped crystalize the ideas in this report.

At DLA, a number of people engaged in discussions of data to help draw conclusions, provided data to support analyses, and invited one of the authors, Eric Peltz, into ongoing initiatives to include the updating of the agency performance review metrics, the stock transport order business logic improvement team, the follow-on stock-keeping unit business logic improvement team, the strategic network optimization initiative, and the land and maritime forecasting improvement effort. We appreciate the access and openness to the identification of opportunities to improve defense supply chain operations. In particular, many of the topics in this report involve functions and processes that fall under the purview of the DLA J-33, Materiel Policy, Process, & Assessment. The J-33 Executive Director and his Deputy, Jeff Curtis and Stephen St. John, ensured the requisite data were made available, engaged in discussions to understand the implications of analysis results, and brought in the right people from their organization to assist with these efforts. Within J-33, Robert Carroll, Chief of the Planning Division, brought us into a number of ongoing efforts that fall within his purview, improving our understanding of cross-functional issues. We also want to highlight the tireless efforts he made to bring a large number of stakeholders together and get the theater inventory concepts discussed extensively in this report fully implemented in DLA. Similarly, Teresa Kyte, Chief of Stock Positioning, provided excellent leadership of the stock transport order (STO) business improvement team, enabling rapid implementation of efficiency-enhancing logic now being extended to stock positioning in general. We also recognize the other members of the STO logic team, from whom we gained new insights into the perspectives of different DLA organizations: Jim Laxton (JWL Consulting), Barry Christensen, Joe Habermehl (Habermehl Con
