ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's experience of serving in Iraq. When he arrived in the Iraqi theater at the end of June 2003, repair parts, uniforms, and many other items were still very scarce. The inability to cope with a very high operating tempo (OPTEMPO) early in the war, and even for a while after the campaign to end Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's regime ended successfully, is understandable. A good throughput operation requires the U.S. suppliers--the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Army Materiel Command (AMC), and commercial contractors--to know which units, over a short period of time, have enough demand to fill a container or triwall box.
