Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research paper is to investigate and assess the interoperability of the Swedish Armed Forces Logistics organizations with Nato. The paper also seeks to identify differences in interoperability within the dimensions of organization, behaviour and logistics, and evaluate the possibilities of streamlining cooperation.

The study is based on Michael Codners theory Dimensions of Multinational Interoperability. The analytical tool that is used in the research paper is based on the OIM model, which was developed to measure organizational interoperability in a military context. The study´s findings indicate significant differences of interoperability in the three dimensions of organization, behavioural and logistics. In addition, the study shows that the Swedish Armed Forces Logistics organization is more interoperable in the dimensions of organization and logistics and less so with regard to behaviour. To attain a higher level of interoperability the two organizations must have a more unified aim regarding the logistics organizations. 

The study recommends an analysis of the technical dimension of interoperability, which was not analysed in this study, in order to gain a greater overall picture of the Swedish Armed Forces interoperability with Nato regarding logistics. Furthermore the study recommends conducting a more detailed analysis of each of the dimensions in order to achieve greater understanding of each one.
