Abstract : Fiscal Code 728011 of the Army Management Structure (AR 37-100) was analyzed and revised to improve management of Industrial Preparedness Operations. The fiscal code provides for the maintenance and protection of idle reserve plants and equipment as well as industrial preparedness planning. The latter involves determination of production requirements and scheduling future production with industry and government sources. Changes were made to the structure of the code and its subelements. In addition, the text was revised to more accurately reflect functional activities being performed. A distinction was made between workload and performance factors. The former was developed for budgetary use. Factors derived from regression correlation technique were employed as workload check factors. Performance factors were also developed to measure the accomplishment of program objectives. (Author)
