Abstract : The lack of a clear definition of wartime requirements for weapon systems is a major problem in establishing mobilization capacity to support defense needs. At present, each service has its own method of determining, prioritizing, and programming to acquire mobilization inventory requirements. Currently, these service requirements determination processes are not clear and are misunderstood. Responsibilities are fragmented, a lack of comparability of need exists, and industrial preparedness requirements are not put in perspective. This study explores these differences and makes appropriate recommendations.
