Future Logistics Enterprise (FLE)

Future Logistics Enterprise (FLE) is a DoD’s vision to accelerate logistics improvement, enhance support to the warfighter, and align logistics processes with the operational demands of the 21st century. The primary objective of the FLE is to ensure consistent, reliable support that meets warfighter requirements through enterprise integration and end-to-end customer service. The FLE builds upon and accelerates specific ongoing Service/agency initiatives to meet the requirements of the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and the National Defense Strategy (NDS).

There are six (6) initiatives that makeup FLE which are: [1]

  1. Total Life Cycle Systems Management (TLCSM)
  2. Condition-Based Maintenance + (CBM+)
  3. Depot Maintenance Partnerships
  4. End-to-End Distribution
  5. Executive Agents (EA)
  6. Enterprise Integration (EI)

To fully assess the policy and implementation of those initiatives, the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Logistics and Materiel Readiness) [DUSD(L&MR)] established the Joint Logistics Board (JLB). The JLB members are the commanders of the Service materiel commands, senior Service staff logisticians, the Joint Staff Director for Logistics, the Deputy CINC US Transportation Command, and the Director, Defense Logistics Agency. This paper documents the results of the JLB’s initial effort to assess policy and describe the near-term way ahead to implement the six initiatives. [1]
