Abstract : The problems encountered with engine generators in the areas of procurement, production, provisioning, supply, maintenance, training and other logistic support are, in the main, attributable to the past and present proliferation of variety and the inventory shortage to meet military requirements. This study reveals the need for a Department of Defense management structure empowered with decision authority over all functional facets of engine generators. Implementation of the recommendations contained herein, single interpretation of Department of Defense regulations and directives in given functional areas, and the institution of a planned program for the development, procurement, maintenance and supply of engine generators should result in an immediate reduction of variety and the rapid elimination of the problems emanating therefrom. Further, expediting implementation of the recommendations contained herein will progressively relieve the current problems in the Vietnam conflict.
