JDLM is a constructive computer-based simulation designed to train commanders and staffs in sustainment functions from the brigade support battalion through the theater support command.
However, simulation-supported training using JDLM is not providing the rigor required to train sustainment units.
In 2003, during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), JDLM was used to create the Logistics Common Operating Picture (LCOP).
V Corps and the 3d Corps Support Command (COSCOM) used JDLM in the predeployment planning process for time-phased force and deployment data (TPFDD) analysis, logistics modeling, and simulation exercises before deploying to OIF in 2003 and 2004.
JDLM is the logistics model that will serve both levels, Dietrick explained.
The current systems will be slowly phased out as WARSIM, ONESAF and JDLM become available.
The Simulation Support Division delivers technical support for the JDLM
to support exercise execution.
is the sustainment simulation capability that can meet exercise requirements in constructive environments.
Manual tracking systems and automated systems, such as JDLM
, DTRACS, MTS, and BFT, provided commanders situational awareness at all times so that they could make sound decisions that kept forces ready to fight.
LESD manages the JDLM
, which simulates BCS3 in accredited DSN or stand-alone exercise events.
One of JDLM
's many strengths is its ability to pass information to the Battle Command Sustainment Support System (BCS3).
The exercise took place during the first week of December 2009 and consisted of a series of master training events supported by the Joint Deployment Logistics Model (JDLM
