Many of the lessons emerging from past and current MNE events, along with the JxDS
, will shape how DoD can utilize the types of services and equities our coalition and interagency partners bring.
As shown in figure 1, the JxDS concept depicts the scalability that can be used for logistics operations depending on intensity and workload.
The four primary organizational structures currently being assessed under JxDS are the Deployment Distribution Operations Center (DDOC), the Enabled J4 (EJ4), the Joint Force Support Component Command (JFSCC), and the Combined Logistics Command and/or Center (CLC).
Forces Korea, elected to implement JxDS via the command-based option, JFSCC, which provides the commander a single point of contact for support.
The four JxDS options described all have strengths and weaknesses.
