The Visual Network Model

  • Moshe Kress


The term logistics network was defined in Chapter 2 (Section 2.4), as an ordered set of logistics nodes (bases, facilities, plants, logistics units) and lines of communication (LOCs). The logistics network embodies the physical components and attributes of an operational logistics (OpLog) system. In particular, it represents the logistics deployment in the theater of operations and the logistics support chain (see definitions of these terms in Chapter 2, Section 2.4). The logistics nodes and the LOCs constitute the OpLog deployment, while the logistics flow in this network is generated by the logistics support chain. Thus, the logistics network is a tangible, observable and measurable entity. It is the physical manifestation of the OpLog system.
