According to the additional reading by USMC LtCol Reuter, the future Joint Force will engage in an operating environment that is a complex mixture of uncertainty, change, and conflict. Among these complexities, global access will be challenged by anti-access and area-denial measures, focused on limiting the Joint Force's freedom of action in a persistent combination of combat, security, engagement, and relief and reconstruction operations. Furthermore, resource constraints will produce military-wide reductions and necessitate a more economical approach to global logistics. As efficiencies are achieved, though, global logistics must effectively sustain the Joint Force. A key factor of success or failure is the effectiveness and efficiency of the logistics enterprise, of which the supply chain is an enabling capability.
Analyzing this DoD case study, in what specific ways could the SCOR framework be used to enhance and enable the combined joint military supply chain to be both more effective (supply chain performance) and efficient (less costly).
