Abstract : SURE 2.0 is a compiled, stand-alone dBase 4 version 2.0 system that allows planners to estimate detailed equipment-based consumption for supply classes 3 and 5, and population-based consumption for classes 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8, and water. It is a replacement for the previous SURE 1.x system that required a copy of Lotus 1-2-3 version 2.x. Hardware requirements for SURE 2.0 are a DOS-based system with 2MB memory or greater, and a hard drive with 3MB or more free disk space available for installation. Use of SURE 2.0 may require from two to twenty MB additional disk space depending on user entries. SURE 2.0 uses doctrinal methods for estimating logistics requirements by providing equipment data and formulas for a number of environmental and combat conditions. SURE's concept of orders-based planning integrates phased operations, parameter sets of operational conditions, and task-organized groupings of units to facilitate the correlation of logistics estimates to operations plans and orders.
