Abstract : Documentation is made of a presentation before the Worldwide Materiel Conference that discusses the value of current logistics research in reducing future uncertainties and risks and in describing future consequences of present resource commitments. Past research on METRIC, on air transport of recoverable items, on scheduled maintenance, and on repair tradeoffs between base and depot are cited as examples of relevant research. Three studies have implications for the future: remotely piloted systems; force capability reporting; and aircraft maintenance scheduling policy. (Author)
