In today’s era all wars of competition are won by the virtue of efficient logistics. And when you are at war you must ensure that both toilet paper and bullets are kept at the right place, in the right quantity and at the right time. Failing which your soldiers may find it difficult to fight.

Is your operation efficient? What can be improved? Does your overall productivity meet expectations?
