Process Map for ANP Logistics
With the shift in focus from unit-based, combat-advising to functionally-based, multi-echelon advising known as functionally-based Security Force Assistance the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has developed and disseminated "process maps" to help advisors do their mission of advise and assist with their Afghan counterparts. A process map is a graphical depiction of an Afghan process, such as Afghan National Police Class V sustainment or Afghan National Army manning (recruitment and retention). The process maps shows the actions that take place between all the organizations involved in a process at all levels. The process maps are intended to help advisors at all levels to become knowledgeable on how the Afghans perform certain functions. The process maps are available online at the link below. See "Annex B: Process Maps" of the "SFA Guide 2.0".
