4 Legacy MALSP…Not integrated with changing warfighter requirements (i.e., Spectrum of Conflict and Range of Military Operations) …highly reactive…not agile…not easily scalable…large footprint.Operationally effective but logistically inefficient. Based on fixed allowances/operational scenarios and ‘iron mountain’ philosophy… discounts impact of time to replenish.Requires significant strategic lift and time for Reception, Staging, Onward-movement & Integration…difficult to reposition…vulnerable.Lacks IT integrated and interoperable solutions for logistics planning and real time logistics chain management.Conflicts with DOD mandates of reduce logistics footprint, enhance global logistics flexibility and agility, increase joint interoperability, and reduce TLCSM costs.

Leveraging TOC and a “demand-pull” system, MALSP II IOC creates a more responsive, flexible and agile logistics chain forward (i.e. ESB, MOB and FOB) back to the Parent MALS.MALSP II IOC will lay the foundation for a “sense and respond” logistics environment (MALSP II FOC). Not only will the logistics chain be fully aligned to all providers in the logistics enterprise i.e. OEM, DLA, FRCs, NAVICP etc, but will provide enhanced C2 to the warfighter in a net-centric battle space.Days of SupplyTime to Reliably ReplenishSpeed/Quality of EffectsIncreased PerformanceReduced FootprintSlide: 99
11 Mission and GoalsMission: HQMC’s agent to manage and develop capabilities for Marine Aviation Logistics Support Program II.Goal:IOC: Provide support to deployed core capable units at a higher level while decreasing deployed infrastructure and resource inventory to support the spectrum of conflict and developing concepts.FOC: Provide support to deployed and non-deployed core capable units at a higher level while decreasing total infrastructure and resource inventory to support the spectrum of conflict and developing concepts.We are committed to achieving Marine Aviation’s desired endstates!2MALSP
12 Transformation Methodologies Use the Theory of Constraints, Lean, and Six Sigma principles to transform the logistics chain from a heavy and reactive push system to an agile, flexible and responsive pull system that is aligned End-to-End, integrated with weapons systems acquisition, supports Current Readiness and the USMC’s Long War Concept.Use IT and other innovative technologies and practices to enhance performance and decision making while providing logistics support responsive to the commander’s intent, the rapidly changing operational environment, and the natural environment.Reach horizontally and vertically across the NAE, with joint partners to achieve synergistic realization of effects based logistics.Use best acquisition processes to provide timely solutions to the customer.Leveraging CPI & Innovative Technologies to enhance the WarfighterSlide: 12

18 AssumptionsCurrent Mobile Facilities can not adequately support the full spectrum, scale and range of military operations as described by the Long War Concept, MC Vision and Strategy 2025 and Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) 2006.The need for new support packages, buffered logistics chains and a mandate to reduce footprint will significantly impact Mobile Facility Future. Specific changes include:Allowances scaled to support smaller det sizes.Maintenance forward as the exception not the rule.Increased support of prolonged and distributed operations.Transportation and distribution improvements (i.e., velocity).Global buffering/sourcing of all 10 ILS functions.New sea-basing requirements, e.g., MPF(F) and TAVB(R).
19 MALSP II and MF Program Relationship AIR collaborated with the MALSP II Project Office during POM 12 Expeditionary Force Development System (EFDS) Functional Area/Needs Analysis. These efforts focused on:Identifying capability gaps and solutions associated with future ACE/MAGTF requirements.Defining MALSP II Remote Expeditionary Support Package (RESP) containers.Although accomplished EFDS work remains valid, the scope of MALSP II has expanded to address other facility/container/shelter gaps.HQMC ASL via AIR 6.8 and WBB is sponsoring the development of a AvLog/MALSP II Family of Systems Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) that captures all MALSP II container/facility/shelter requirements under the title “Expeditionary Delivery Systems (EDS).” This ICD will serve as:An acquisitions requirements document from which Capability Development Documents (CDDs) can be created.A vision and strategy reference for MALSP II-related initiatives.
20 POM-12 EFDS GapsLoss of capabilities if strategic lift is unavailable or inadequate.No standardized Type/Model/Series planning data. Effects deliberate planning.Currently no ability to disaggregate.Hampers initial operating capability (IOC). Loss of capabilities if strategic lift is unavailable or inadequate.Inability to support units smaller than squadron size.Current assets are inflexible for other than high end operations.Presently tactical lift cannot adequately perform mission.Inability to overcome environmental challenges and natural obstacles results in material deterioration and loss of capability.

22 EDS ApplicationContainers – supports MALSP II RESP material (parts & equipment) storage and quick access in support of aviation maintenance and operations. Attributes include:Modular/scalable and durable design.Accommodates organic last tactical mile transportModerate to significant environmental control.Shelters – Protective enclosures for personnel, parts equipment (e.g., aircraft and support equipment). Supports MALSP II RESP maintenance requirements in support of aviation maintenance and operations. Attributes include:Light, collapsible, and durable design.Provides limited to moderate environmental protection.Hybrid – Combines container and shelter capabilities and attributes.Ancillary - Items not currently included in the inventory for MFs, however, they are necessary for the successful movement, security and tracking of EDS. Examples include tie-down chains and RFID tags.
