Abstract
The program for the Development of Integrated Logistics in the Canadian Forces (DEVIL Program) envisages the use of a highly automated information system in the management of logistics. The system will embody a large base of data, and relatively sophisticated algorithms for forecasting the requirements and for setting the stock levels required to provide logistic support to the operational forces. The cost for this information system has been justified by economies in the management of inventory. The Treasury Board have requested the Department of National Defence to carry out studies during the implementation of the new management system in order to obtain more precise measures of these economies.
