10 February 2017

Key Points

  • TFSMS is making the USMC be more efficient and effective in tracking force structure billets and equipment
  • TFSMS combines the TMR and the LMIS

All units have access to TFSMS and to their tables of organisation and tables of equipment, Cynthia Cheek, deputy director of the Total Force Structure division, told Jane's.
