Abstract [sv]

När man studerar logistik finner man att det är ett mångdimensionellt område sett både ur civiltoch militärt perspektiv. Man finner att begreppet logistik används i stor omfattning i dagenssamhälle och kan betecknas som ett modeord. Ser man till svensk försvarsmakt, kan man undersenare år se en snabb utveckling och förändring avseende uppgifter och struktur och där säkerhetspolitiskaförändringar i omvärlden påverkar på olika sätt. Detta inverkar även på logistikfunktionensom måste anpassa sitt funktionsområde utifrån de nya uppgifterna.Syftet med denna uppsats är att beskriva likheter och olikheter mellan Rysslands, Sveriges ochNATO:s logistikfunktioner avseende; syfte och definition, ingående delfunktioner och delfunktionernasorganisatoriska koppling. Studien har genomförts utifrån operativ och strategisk nivåoch endast den militära logistikfunktionen har studerats. En kvalitativ metod har använts ochdet empiriska materialet har tagits fram genom intervjuer och litteratursökning.

Abstract [en]

Logistics is a complex subject encompassing both military and civilian aspects.Logistics is a current word in society today and appears in many different contexts.The purpose of this essay is to describe the similarities and differences between thelogistic functions of Russia, Sweden and NATO, with reference to; the purpose anddefinition, the components of logistic functions and the connection between thecomponents. In this essay, only military logistics at strategic and operational levelshave been studied.In this study, a “system theory” has been used. These theories have a central aim andfrom this aim, components that have a connection to the central aim have beenstudied. Furthermore, the connection between the components and the central aim hasbeen investigated. In this essay, the central aim is the logistic function and thecomponents are; the definition and purpose, components that are a part of the logisticfunction and the organisation between the logistic function and the components. Theused method is a qualitative method in order to achieve a deeper understanding of theproblem.Data was examined by reading and analysing literature and by interviewing peoplewho have a connection with the matter of logistic functions.The general result of this essay is; that the NATO definition is used in internationalmissions today and EU has adopted the same definition and procedures. TodaySweden has no definition of logistics, but work has started and the proposal is toadopt NATO´s definition. In Russia the definition of logistics is wider and more away of thinking about how troops and operations will be able to get vital force andaccomplish practicability.The logistic components in NATO are the components that are needed to solve thedefinition and purpose. In Russia several logistic components are included because ofthe wider definition and purpose of the logistic function. Sweden is looking for a newdefinition. In this work there is talk of including the same logistic components asthose of NATO.The organisation concerned with logistic components in Russia is a strong one, withconnections from the highest to the lowest organisation level. The structure of theorganisation is similar the whole way, which provides clarity in the organisation andin the command and control aspect. NATO, also an organisation, has created staff forthe specific tasks or missions. All the logistic components, which are needed in aparticular task or mission, have specific staff. Sweden is looking for a way oforganisation and command and control to have in the future logistic function. Thestarting point for this work is the structure of NATO together with the generalstructure of organisation and command in the Swedish military defence.
