Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop an efficient management plan for a performance-based military support project as a weapon system using Fourth Industrial Revolution technology, such as the launch of the Army TIGER Combat Group. According to the Ministry of National Defense, the performance-based military support project plans to expand various ranges and stages. Thus, more detailed management measures that combine value analysis and learning effects are significant. The results of this study are as follows. First, in preparing for the expansion of performance-based military support projects, a plan to use companies under the leadership of the military is proposed preemptively. Second, the performance-based military support application project using ABC analysis and portfolio technology and the scope of application for military service improvement is presented separately. Third, a plan to expand the quantity of maintenance equipment acquired is proposed to improve the agility of exhibition maintenance support. This is expected to stabilize supply to companies and reduce the cost and total cost of ownership for the military. Fourth, by adding qualitative indicators based on quantitative indicators, a system that enables South Korea to actively participate in maintaining equipment operations and relying only on companies. Rather than the vague expectation that performance-based military resources will effectively utilize civilian capabilities and reduce budgets, the military must develop management strategies to maintain its immediate dispatch attitude in wartime to restore resilience and achieve its core goal.
