Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) is the disciplined and unified management of the technical logistics disciplines that plan and develop support for military forces. With the implementation of the ILS concept, there has been a remarkable progress; yet substantial problems were found that had to be addressed. In an effort to tackle such problems in the acquisition of weapon systems and logistics support, the United States Department of Defense formulated a new concept. Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support (CALS) is an initiative to enable and accelerate the integration of digital information for major system acquisition, design, manufacture, and support. This thesis examines the relationship between Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) and Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support (CALS) and proposes the better way of understanding of ILS and CALS concept for the future Korean Armed Forces Logistics Support and Acquisition.
