1-18.1 Operating Concept

Logistics is required to ensure continuous support of a client’s operational needs, which are defined in Section 1-1, Define and Understand Client Needs, Goals, and Strategies. This information should include how reliable the client expects the product to be and how quickly it needs to be available from the time the need is identified. This information drives what types of support must be acquired, in what quantities, and where it must be positioned to meet the needs.
