About the Edition

To meet the demands of the past decade of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army has adopted a rotational strategy based on the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) model. While the Army has adapted many of its policies to the ARFORGEN model, the equipping policies still largely reflect Cold War tradition to provide active, reserve, and National Guard units with 100 percent of their equipment at all times during the ARFORGEN cycle. This report uses a simulation model to analyze how the Army might reduce equipment in early phases of the ARFORGEN cycle, how those changes might be applied across Army units and equipment, and how those changes might affect near- and far-term budgets. The report finds that reducing overall Army authorization levels can reduce near-term procurements totaling billions of dollars across the Future Years Defense Program.--P. [4] of cover.

Multiple Authors, Books, History, Efficiencies From Applying A Rotational Equipping Strategy, To meet the demands of the past decade of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army has adopted a rotational strategy based on the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) model, but equipping policies have not yet been adapted to the model. To meet the demands of the past decade of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army has adopted a rotational strategy based on the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) model. Public reporting burden for the collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and.

A rotational equipping strategy reduces the amount of equipment units have in the early phases of the ARFORGEN cycle, thus enabling reductions in overall equipment authorizations. Such a strategy could reduce costs by $5–$10 billion from FY 12 and beyond. Efficiencies from Applying a Rotational Equipping Strategy The increasing number of suicides is causing concern in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Suicide-prevention programs in DoD and across the services have some (but not all) of the characteristics of comprehensive programs. We test if such alpha signifies a true sector out/underperformance by applying simple long-only and long-short sector rotation strategies. Our long-only sector rotation strategy that buys a sector.   The nitritation step is essential when the anammox process is focused, and alternative technologies to achieve partial nitritation-anammox are require.

An internally sourced UDP is one sourced completely within the command through redistribution of its assets within authorized levels. THE ARMY EQUIPPING STRATEGY – WAYS and MEANS The Army Equipping Strategy encompasses three major lines of operation. The first one, the unit-focused main effort, is ARFORGEN-Based Equipping. The second is focused on the equipping phases described above and is called Managing Friction. Efficiencies from Applying a Rotational Equipping Strategy Analyzes how the Army might use a rotational strategy to reduce equipment in early phases of the Army Force Generation cycle, how changes might be applied to units and equipment, and how changes might affect near- . The use of process intensification (PI) outside the chemicals sector will aid technology transfer among those considering PI as a technology in any industry, and it is also believed that this will encourage innovation in areas where energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies are becoming increasingly important, such as absorption and.
