ABSTRACT
There has long been a tendency towards bespoke rather than Commercial Off-the-Shelf Software (COTS) in the military environment. However, the problems of government-run software programming and the incompatibility of different bespoke systems put such processes at a disadvantage. EXE Technologies, a vendor of supply chain execution software, has been the supplier of military warehousing and supply programs based on COTS technology that address the challenges of the military supply-chain system. Effective logistics is very important to military campaign. Logistics was coined by the Napoleonic Army, for which logistics became in its rampage across Europe.
