DLA's Web site cites several reasons for modernizing logistics
systems. To name a few:
* Current systems do not support commercial business practices, and
as originally conceived, reflect the agency's past organizational structure
and work processes.
* A new business systems environment is required to transform the Defense
Logistics Support Command from a manager of supplies to a manager of suppliers.
* Potential outsourcing requires the integration of supplier, customer
and inventory information.
* The current materiel management systems are technologically obsolete
and subject to increasing failure.
