Abstract : The thesis of this article is that the pace and load of force modernization has overcome our capability to integrate the management of total weapons systems fielding. It presents a brief overview of force modernization management roles, the management products required to achieve total systems fielding and the LCSMM. The author specifically addresses the products provided from the personnel community: manpower, MOS, documentation, training and qualified personnel. These five products are discussed in light of the management disconnects at the margins of the LCSMM, the PPBES, and the five elements. Specific management initiatives planned to integrate the margin disconnects are presented at the conclusion of the article. (Author)
