(CAPS) is nearing completion of a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award from the Air Force Office Of Scientific Research entitled "Interactivc Distributed Logistics Management." The principal idea is to develop computer-aided methodology to allow different logistics planning levels to simultaneously and cooperatively build and administer a logistics plan. This methodology will allow the military and other organizations to use integrated computer-aided models in a manner closely matching the organizational decision hierarchy, resulting in hlghfi quality plans developed faster. Operation Desert Shield in particular has spotlighted the importance and complexity of successfully coordinating large-scale logistics planning. Prior ,r, thbr 109f"s, c:.,: .j.XJ models for miitary deployment planning were primarily based on simulation concepts. These models executed in a batch fashion on mainframe-size computers and were basically descriptive, playing out an existing logistics plan in order to examine its behavior and feasibility....
