Francisco Suárez's concept of being by Mark D'Amato( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the fundamental aspects of Suarez's doctrine of being. Specifically, these aspects include: his concept of being and the manner in which he develops his definition of being as 'essence and existence'. This thesis attempts to illustrate the Suarezian position on, and elucidate the distinction he draws between, essence and existence. Further, this thesis demonstrates that his position was the unavoidable result of Suarez's first premise on the nature of being in general. This result is significant with regard to the modification of Aquinas' view and the regnant Thomistic position
RSOI: Force Deployment Bottleneck by Mark A D'Amato( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study uses The Theory Of Constraints (TOC) management methodology and recent military missions to show that RSOI operations are generally the limiting constraint to force deployment operations. This runs counter to the popular belief that strategic lift is the limiting constraint. The study begins by highlighting the genesis of the military's current force projection strategy and the resulting importance of rapid force deployments. This is followed by a discussion on the force deployment pipeline and on Reception, Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration (RSOI) operations. The focus of Chapter 2 is explaining the TOC methodology and its application to force deployments. This chapter gives a detailed analysis of the five step process and uses military examples to help the reader understand its use as an analytical tool for planners and operators. The bulk of the analysis is conducted in Chapter 3. Using TOC methodology, the Joint Flow and Analysis System for Transportation (JFAST) simulation, and some historical examples the study demonstrates that RSOI operations generally constrain force deployments. The chapter also discusses initiatives to break the constraint and improve flow through the system. The study concludes with the following findings: (1) RSOI operations are the critical vulnerability to force deployment operations, (2) efforts to reduce flow should generally take priority over efforts to increase capacity at the constraint, (3) more strategic lift is not the answer, (4) improved planning and tracking tools are required, (4) a permanent and tailorable RSOI organization is needed to achieve unity of command and unity of effort, and (5) institutionalizing the process of continual improvement is required
Round 15, and the winner is? : the ongoing debate on who should manage medical supply by Mark A D'Amato( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study attempts to disprove the paradigm that medical supply requires separate management under the control of the Army's medical community. Disproving this paradigm can result in immediate economies for the Army. In an era of shrinking resources these potential economies become more and more important as the Army strives to maintain readiness for future employment. Understanding how the Army's medical supply system evolved is central to understanding the medica! supply paradigm and eventually disproving it. Therefore, the study - begins by reviewing its history since World War II and highlights both current and future medical supply doctrine. With the system's foundation firmly established, arguments for and against it are thoroughly discussed, followed by a short description of its key components. These chapters provide the reader an understanding of the current system and set the stage for testing the assumptions underlying it. With this in mind, the last chapter, using historical as well as current literature, analyses the arguments and disproves the paradigm. The study ends by concluding that there are no substantial reasons; historical, organizational, or technical, for the separation of medical supply from the general supply system. The potential for integration Into the general supply system was recognized as early as World War II and the time is ripe for change. A shrinking budget, coupled with improvements in information management systems and high quality soldiers, is the recipe for change. It is no longer necessary nor cost effective to have a separate medical supply system
