This resource produced by Army School of Logistic Operations (ASLO) is a guide to assist logistics staff planners in developing and producing a Concept of Logistic Support (COLS) to support their commander's plan.

This resource is aimed at formation level to conduct Combat Service Support (CSS) effects' based planning which will result in subsequent tasking to CSS Units and sub-units. It can also be used by logistic staff at unit level where tasks are substituted for effects.

ASLO have created a Combat Service Support Battle Operating System Planning Process Chart to assist with Staff planning.
