Abstract

The current ammunition industrial base was built during and after World War II and was scaled to meet the production rates of a conflict based on that war's magnitude (JMC, 2010). The primary issue is how to preserve the capacity for surge procurement requirements for military readiness, and still be able to operate economically during peacetime levels using generally antiquated facilities (JMC, 2010). The traditional fix is to keep procuring ammunition from existing facilities (JMC, 2010). These solutions will never truly solve the problem as they only look to operate the existing outdated capability. What is needed is the modernization of the base that utilizes the latest in manufacturing science and technology for improvements in cost and quality (JMC, 2010). Through the implementation of modern process technologies, the next-generation industrial base can be created that will enable both military and commercial products to be produced economically and under strict quality control criteria.
