D-to-P assets required on D-day

D-to-P assets required on D-day

As applied to the D-to-P concept, this asset requirement represents those stocks that must be physically available on D-day to meet initial allowance requirements, to fill the wartime pipeline between the producers and users (even if P-day and D-day occur simultaneously), and to provide any required D-to-P consumption or production differential stockage. The D-to-P assets required on D-day are also represented as the difference between the D-to-P materiel readiness gross requirements and the cumulative sum of all production deliveries during the D-to-P period. See also D-to-P concept.
