To sustain combat power, the imperatives stated that the Army needs * The ability to connect logisticians so they can see requirements on demand through a logistics information network. * A responsive and reliable theater distribution system enabled by in-transit and total asset visibility and managed by a single owner that has positive endto-end control. * A robust, modular force-reception capability, with a dedicated and trained organization able to quickly open a theater and support flexible, continuous sustainment throughout the joint operations area. * An integrated supply chain that allows the Army to effectively leverage all sustainment resources in a joint, interagency, and multinational theater. The general said that in the next 5 years the Army needs to optimize the defense supply chain through unity of effort; deliver enterprise-wide visibility through joint requirements, resources, and processes; establish a life-cycle systems approach by linking acquisition and sustainment and managing fleets of equipment; improve joint operational contracting; optimize redeployment; and integrate readiness, reset, and the depots to establish a baseline capacity for lifecycle systems readiness.
