The plans help create accurate LCOPs and become the driving forces behind successful concepts of support.
Developing accurate and reliable LCOPs is only possible when these four essential elements are understood, are planned for, and incorporate interoperable systems developed to capture the information required to sustain multinational task forces.
The LCOP is essentially a function of the common operational picture (COP).
Contemporary logistics operations require that use of the LCOP be integrated into and support the COP.
Once the LOGSTAT format is determined, a good data-transfer battle rhythm must be established to develop a good LCOP.
Comparing the commodities backhauled with the commodities sent by emergency resupply will give logistics planners and executers an idea of where their LCOP is deficient.
Integrate the senior commander's operations center with the SMCC through battle command systems and ensure the LCOP
is visible and regularly updated for the senior commander.
include locations of containers and equipment during deployment and redeployment, status and locations of supply points, route statuses, and convoy management.
BCS3 is being incorporated into the business practices of USAREUR and V Corps, and it provided the logistics and transportation portion of the LCOP
in two recent predeployment exercises, Urgent Victory and Unified Endeavor.
