Abstract

During the last decade we are witnessing an up growing trend of assimilation of quality management systems in various IDF units, when in this paper we will concentrate on Logistic Array units, especially on Logistic Headquarters.

Quality systems that are being assimilated - are quality management systems, environmental management systems and occupational health and safety management systems, according to international standards requirements and specifications.

In IDF there are many orders and various regulations in different fields that have been written during the period of its existence. Among those orders are: High Command Instructions, General Staff orders, various military corps orders - such as a Logistic, Maintenance and Medical Corps orders etc.  

With the up growing trend of ISO assimilations in a Logistic Array there are more and more units joining the leverage every year. The sum of money paid to various accreditation bodies is growing rapidly, when we should also consider every year maintenance costs of those accreditations. The money paid to outside army body is very problematic due to current low budget situation in the army; many commanding officers think that this payment could and should be avoided.

The main idea behind this paper was to compare the Various IDF Orders that Bound a Logistic Headquarters to ISO 9001 requirements, in order to check the extent of response given in those orders to ISO requirements.

The conclusion of the paper is that various IDF orders that bound a logistic headquarters cover the requirements of ISO 9001:2000 on the level of nearly 80 percent, when the rest of the requirements mostly are not relevant to a logistic headquarters as a service body.
