Abstract : The joint operations planning system (JOPS) is a tool planners use during the deliberate planning process to produce a time-phased force deployment document. Often overlooked is the non-unit portion of this document. The non-unit data, as a rule, projects notional tonnages of various classes of supply for the sustainment of deployed forces. There is a distinct process that logistics planners follow to produce the data. This process is not totally understood by planners, but must be if planning is to be complete. This paper examines the non-unit process from the perspective of the Air Force component planner. This is accomplished by reviewing the JOPS development process. Following this review are proposals on ways to make the process more responsive in today's planning world.
