CONCLUSION

horizontal rule

bullet The NCS is often referred to as an international language of logistics. It is not an inventory control system; it is the logistics language used by such systems. Likewise, it is not a supply accounting system, but the logistics language used by supply systems. This also applies to procurement systems, maintenance systems, and transportation systems.

bullet The NCS is the foundation of inter-service and inter-nation logistics co-operation. Thus, adopting this language is often the first step towards such co-operation.

bullet The NATO Codification System (NCS) is an integral part of the supply operations of NATO nations and many non-NATO nations.

bullet Its benefits are recognised by its Logistics users. This system has established a single supply language, provides accurate information on the identity and characteristics of an item of supply and avoids duplicates.

bullet It is a flexible system with growth and upgrade capacity to facilitate improved support to logisticians.
