DLA Energy, DLA Office of Operations Research and Resource Analysis (DORRA) and Center for Excellence in Distribution and Logistics (CEDLi), University of Arkansas are developing a DoD Global Bulk Petroleum Supply Network Simulation and Modeling tool to enable world class analysis of DoD requirements against commercial/military bulk petroleum networks to identify potential logistics options and capabilities gaps. Current DoD, Combatant Commands (CCMDs), Military Services & /DLA Global-Theater Logistics Supportability Assessment of Bulk Petroleum support of Operational/Contingency Plans is a manual-spreadsheet process that is fragmented between Supported/Supporting CCMDs, Geographical Military Service Components and DLA Energy. The lack of a DoD/Enterprise automated simulation/modeling analytical process/tools hampers a Global/World Class assessment and optimal alignment of resources (and attributes to miss-alignment of resources) and leaves potential logistical blind spots that will become too apparent only at execution. This workshop will provide an overview of the ongoing simulation-modeling development and solicitation of feedback from stakeholders and interested parties.
