Department of Defense industrial plant equipment costing about $5.4 billion requires more efficient management. The military services' need of industrial plant equipment should be based on total peacetime mobilization requirements, less those requirements which private industry will meet.

The services do not have practical systems for translating mobilization end-item requirements into equipment needs. They seem to have retained more equipment than needed for peacetime and mobilization requirements.
