Defense Logistics and Materiel Readiness

Across the Logistics community the challenge exists to sustain forward operating Commands and Organizations with limited resources. Policy leaders are working diligently to create strategies that address the warfighter’s needs and tasking Defense Support Agencies to do more with less. Logistics has evolved significantly since initial operations began in Iraq and Afghanistan. Efficient use of resources and process improvement technologies are no longer simply prudent, but necessary for continued sustainment. Everything from the precise mobility of personnel and materiel to extended asset tracking at forward bases must be leveraged to meet the needs of the Department.

DSI's Logistics and Materiel Readiness Summit will address the following critical topics:

  • Solutions for supporting the warfighter and continued operations in a period of financial austerity
  • Ensuring Combatant Commander Readiness across the globe
  • Maintenance policy in support of affordable solutions across the supply chain
  • Systems innovations to reduce manpower requirements
  • Life cycle management solutions and PBL to improve affordability
  • The critical role of the Defense Industrial Base
