With the war in Ukraine still being played out in all its raw brutality, it is perhaps premature to arrive at any meaningful conclusions about the conflict’s long-term impact on
THE BENEFITS OF OPTIMIZED LOGISTICS
Supply Chain Management
Logistics and supply chain management rely on seamless integration within a military environment. Both must work hand-in-hand to deliver efficient logistics through the enablement of strategic decision-making at all levels of the supply chain, which leads to the creation of the logistics framework.
Streamline military logistics through SCM integration
Supply Chain Management is key to military logistics and necessary to ensure mission success. There are many complexities to the supply chain in a military situation and these are rising in number as the military environment goes through necessary evolutionary change according to increasing vulnerabilities in terms of both physical and cyber security. Next generation technologies and solutions offer an opportunity to streamline logistics processes across the board and integration of these technologies delivers a powerful platform from which military planners can gain unique transparency.
A cross-functional approach
CLOS military logistics software offers a cross-functional approach, combining several features to enhance and accelerate military planning on a comprehensive scale. Supply Chain Management within CLOS allows real-time, secure access to critical data for those that need it, including third-party providers across the supply chain, while seamlessly protecting both the data and the communications behind it.
- Real time accessibility
- Protects data and communications
- Integrated features
Effective Supply Chain Management creates logistics confidence
Military logistics plays a critical role during combat situations. The movement of people, supplies and everything needed for deployment and return is a precise science that relies heavily on the supply chain. Effective Supply Chain Management is key to every stage of logistics from planning to execution and must be prepared for swift and efficient changes and updates to operations.
Logistics and Supply Chain Management are different in terms of the levels of information gathered and analyzed. In the military arena there is a fine line between the two and integration is key to increasing efficiency in the decision-making and planning processes.
- Increase military preparedness
- Enhance capability
- Protect data and communications throughout the supply chain
Increasing military preparedness and capability can be achieved using the latest technologies available within military logistics software such as CLOS. With comprehensively available, yet seamlessly secure access to real-time data and communications between logistics and the supply chain, both efficiency and security is enhanced across the entire system. CLOS forms a powerful link that can meet the challenges of future military logistics operations head on.
Optimizing SCM according to goals
Supply Chain Management also handles the storage and maintenance of supplies and military hardware in all its forms. As an example, this inevitably includes hazardous materials and dangerous supplies. CLOS military logistics software contains Supply Chain Management functionality that increases the flexibility of logistics processes – a much-needed operational advantage for the military environment – and simplifies, yet optimizes the security of the movement, handling and storage of dangerous materials in designated zones.
Today’s military logistics environment consists of many levels of operations, including third-party providers working alongside and within the supply chain. SCM is key to delivering cost-effective logistics on a global scale and increases responsiveness when management is seamless and fully optimized.
CLOS delivers a powerful, comprehensively visible approach to enable optimization of the entire supply chain management process according to specific goals set to enhance readiness and security. Using Machine Learning algorithms and technologies, CLOS allows the system to remain flexible and adaptable to even last-minute changes, updating the supply chain in real time.
What the military can learn from a civilian approach
Some of the world’s most successful e-Commerce businesses are using dynamic, intelligent solutions and software to simplify their logistics operations. This has dramatically improved the efficiency of the delivery of consignments over multiple locations.
Recently, the Pentagon stated that current commercial sector technologies could further real-time benefits in the military platform through adaptation. The military environment needs flexibility in the changing landscape and military software is developing to ensure this is achievable at every level.
The adoption of a civilian approach to logistics in the incorporation of next-generation technologies, such as Machine Learning and AI can clearly create strategic advantage – from planning to execution and everything in between.
- Increased efficiency
- Enhanced flexibility
- Seamlessly secure
