a. The purpose of this series of manuals is to provide guidance to al! personnel concerned with implementation of AR 750-6 and involved in materiel support, beginning with management leve! activities and extending down through channels to operating leve! personnel. It is assumed that personnel assigned to managerial responsibilities in the materiel support area have had extensive experience in one of more elements of materiel support. For these readers, portions of these manuals may cover familiar material. However, the manuals will guide readers with limited prior experience or knowledge toward the kinds of judgments that have to be made in the materielsupport area.

b. These manuals define the concept of integrated logistic support planning and describe the actions and j udgments necessary to insure the orderly and systematic initiation, development, and monitoring of support planning and implementation of plans for materiel end items or systems during the four phases of the Army materiel life c!cle (i.e., concept formulation, contract defi¡Iibon, development and production, and operations and disposal) .

c. This series of manuals is also intended to describe the impact of integrated logistic support requirements have on the selection of scientific and technological approaches to long range military materiel considerations.

d. In summary, these manuals are intended to--

(1) Define the principal elements of integrated logistic support.

(2) Examine, in depth, the relationships among support elements, mission effectiveness, and cost effectiveness ; while each proposed support concept is being formulated, as the selection of concepts is made, and as their effectiveness evolves throughout the materiel life cycle.
