dc.description.abstractThis research aimed to 1) investigate the conditions and problems of military logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of the Royal Thai Army (RTA), 2) to examine the factors affecting the success of military logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA, and 3) to develop the military logistics model for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA. The research was based on mixed method between survey research with a questionnaire as a data collection tool, and qualitative research with documentary research, in-depth interview, and focus group discussion as the data collection tools.th
dc.description.abstractThe findings could be divided into 5 parts. Firstly, the disaster relief operations of RTA were divided into 2 types: 1) to follow the order of the government, and 2) the management initiated by RTA itself. Secondly, all phases of military logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA were interrelated with the Strategic Response Plan which required Ministry of Defence (MOD) to function merely as a supporter of Ministry of Interior (MOI). As a consequence, military logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA went the similar way as MOD Disaster Relief Plan B.E. 2554 (2011). However, when the disaster grows stronger to level 3 or above, logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA would become more flexible as they would be based on MOD Notification on Principles, Methods, and Conditions of Assisting Disaster Victims in an Emergency B.E. 2547 (2004). Thirdly, the problems about military logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA in 2011 could be divided into 2 groups: policy problems and management problems. Fourthly, regarding the factors affecting the success of logistics for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA, it was found that in practice, there were flaws, problems, or insufficiencies about policy implementation which could be divided into 6 groups: 1) characteristics of the policy i.e. trial practice and quality of feedback, 2) objectives of the policy i.e. success indicator of the policy and accuracy of information, 3) sufficiency of resources i.e. budget, manpower quality and number, and management, 4) technical or theoretical possibility i.e. characteristics of the technology, 5) characteristics of the organization implementing the policy i.e. structure, supervision, and procedure of open communication, and 6) relationship of the mechanisms in the organization or between organizations implementing the policy i.e. number of relevant organizations, number of decision making points, and interference from higher organization. Regarding the factors affecting the success or failure of logistics in disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA in the preparation and reconstruction phases, no flaws, problems, or insufficiencies were found to significantly affect the policy implementation. Finally, the military logistics model for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA in the response phase consists of 6 factors: 1) characteristics of the policy i.e. trial practice in the pilot area and continuous improvement of evaluation system, 2) objectives of the policy i.e. continuous development of indicator and establishment of effective communication system, 3) sufficiency of resources i.e. revision of regulations and policy to meet the actual situation, development of relevant doctrines, and suitable allocation of equipment, 4) technical or theoretical possibility i.e. development and application of technology that fits the external environment of the organization, 5) characteristics of the organization implementing the policy i.e. restructuring the supervision style to be more flexible and development of formal and informal relationships with other organizations, and 6) relationship of the mechanisms in the organization or between organizations implementing the policy i.e. close and continuous coordination with other agencies, minimization of operation process, and establishment of correct understandings with other organization. The evaluation results of the military logistics model for disaster relief operations (flooding) of RTA showed that the model was suitable, complete, and practical.th
