Military logistics operations face a volatile, uncertain and complex world. After COVID-19, no supply chain can remain the same given the effect it’s had on the world economy and international trading relationships. Changes, reforms and rethinking of the way our supply chains work are needed to ensure that food and medicine arrive on time, as we have learned in coping with the pandemic.
This is especially true for military organizations. All military missions depend on supply chains to deliver the supplies and equipment needed for the mission to be successful. Logistics becomes a critical challenge when links in these supply chains move across foreign territory. Military supply chains need to maintain adequate inventory to service all personnel on military bases around the world. This entails establishing a logistics network that cannot be disrupted, as that would put the safety and operating capabilities of troops at risk.
SCM Globe supply chain simulation software addresses key logistics training and planning challenges that military organizations will face in the post pandemic world. Working as a subcontractor on a Defense Health Agency (DHA) proof of concept project we added a logistics dimension to a federation of other training simulations. Different training simulations in the federation took place in different locations such as: a point of injury out in the field; a helicopter transporting a patient from the point of injury to a field hospital or a surgical hospital.
These different locations were represented as facilities or vehicles in the supply chain model that we created to support the activities occurring in the other simulations. This is shown in the screenshots below. See more about this in our blog post “Military Medical Logistics Training Simulations“.
SCM Globe is easily understood by logistics and non-logistics personnel. And it’s usable by all levels of logistics personnel, not just small groups of supply chain experts at headquarters.
- Quickly plan and simulate any supply chain, anywhere in the world.
- Drag and drop to place facilities, vehicles and routes on maps.
- Easy control of supply chain variables to explore different decisions.
- View inventory levels, vehicle utilization and operating costs.
- What works best in simulations also works best in the real world
SCM Globe is ready to empower military planners and logistics personnel with powerful, easy-to-use applications for training, planning and managing supply chains in high change environments.
