Quantitative Measurements for Logistics evolved from my desk notes collected from over 25 years working in military logistics. I found that I had to relearn how to perform basic logistics calculations whenever I used them. During my Certified Professional Logistician (CPL) study, there was no single source for all of the logistics mathematics that would be on the exam. I took those desk notes and typed them into the PC to consolidate and format them. After sharing my efforts with co-workers, it became apparent that others also had a need for the information. This book is intended to be used as a desk top reference. It is not a textbook by itself but is a good supplement to other logistics textbooks; especially those within the McGraw-Hill / SOLE press. In addition to the mathematical formulas, acronyms and definitions of many commonly found logistics terms were included. QML is for both business and military logisticans. The major differences between the two is that while business logisticians generally know what products they need to move, the military logistics engineer spends a great deal of time determining what items need to be moved in order to support the warfighter. Most of the formulas in this book may be applied to both groups of logisticians. QML is an indispensable reference on my desk. I hope that other logisticians and students of logistics and supply chain management also find that it is of benefit to them. My goal in publishing this information was to share my knowledge and experience with other logisticians. If you have any comments or suggestions for future editions, please contact SOLE - The International Society of Logistics.
