Abstract : The three case studies presented in the document continue the effort devoted over the past few years to the preparation of meaningful cases in the field of logistics that might be used to enhance the learning process in this vitally important area of resources management. The cases are the following: Case A, Commander Clod and the Case of the Barnacle Bottom, focuses on the spares support problems for a new type of aircraft being placed aboard an aircraft carrier scheduling for deployment in a relatively short time period. Case B, Operation Ti Won On, is concerned with the deployment to an overseas location of a heavy bomber wing, including a support package consisting of personnel, equipment, and supplies. The third case in the series, Case C, The Lockmess Monster, is concerned with accomplishing a Time Compliance Technical Order (TCTO) program within a given time and at a minimum cost.
