A series of coordinated case studies compares the structure, size, and performance of local food supply chains with those of mainstream supply chains. Interviews and site visits with farms and businesses, supplemented with secondary data, describe how food moves from farms to consumers in 15 food supply chains. Key comparisons between supply chains include the degree of product differentiation, diversification of marketing outlets, and information conveyed to consumers about product origin. The cases highlight differences in prices and the distribution of revenues among supply chain participan

NIST's Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory (MEL) is developing standards that promote interoperability among members of the U.S. automotive supply chain. This study assesses the costs of imperfect interoperability to the U.S. automotive supply chain & describes the sources of these costs. This study estimates that imperfect interoperability imposes at least $1 billion per year on the members of the U.S. automotive supply chain. By far, the greatest component of these costs is the resources devoted to repairing or reentering data files that are not usable for downstream applications.

DoD fuel consumption varies from year to year in response to changes in mission and the tempo of operations. DoD may consume upwards of 1% of the petroleum products refined in the U.S. annually. The majority of DoD¿s bulk fuel purchases are for jet fuel, which has ranged as high as 101 million barrels annually in the past decade. The U.S. refining industry has been supplying 50% of DoD¿s jet fuel. Contents of this report: (1) Background; (2) Fuel Purchases: DoD Fuel Cost vs. Commercial Fuel Price; (3) Refining, Suppliers, and the Crude Oil Supply: Crude Oil Supply; Refining; Sulfur Reg¿s.;
