Recent operations abroad have shed light on shortfalls in the way the Air Force performs intratheater airlift within the military joint end-to-end multimodal movement system. Cargo backlogs, insufficient methods of tracking cargo, inefficient use of airlift resources, and a lack of discipline in requesting airlift support were among the problems identified. Using an expanded strategies-to-tasks framework as a "lens" for evaluating intra- and intertheater movement, the authors assess current intratheater airlift processes, organizations, doctrine, training, and systems. The report catalogues identified shortfalls and recommends options for improving the Theater Distribution System. They recommend a clear separation of supply, demand, and integrator roles, and they provide several organizational options. They also suggest the adoption of a closed-loop planning and execution process that focuses on the trade-offs in effectiveness and efficiency of alternative network options.

The book begins with a description of how the revenue generation mechanism of a bank works. Asset liability management (ALM) and associated interest rate and liquidity risks are defined and other measures such as duration and convexity are calculated. In order to understand the various yield curve shapes, shifts and outlooks, a review of the historical US yield term structures is conducted. This is followed by a look at various ALM strategies, in view of future expected interest rate outlooks, and their impact on the maturity distributions of assets & liabilities of banks. Next, the various assumptions used in an ALM model are assessed, followed by an explanation of price and rate gaps with some basic illustrations to understand the concepts of net interest income at risk and market value at risk. ALM reports profile cash flows by maturity or reset buckets. A methodology for building maturity and liquidity profiles for banks’ advances and deposits portfolios using the Pivot table & chart functionality in EXCEL is discussed. Step by step methodologies for various ALM measurement tools follow. These include Fall in Market Value of Equity, Earnings at Risk, Cost to Close liquidity gap, Cost to Close interest rate gap, Rate Sensitive Gap, Duration Gap. An overview of other ALM reports such as price sensitive gap, net interest income (NII) and liquidity gap is given. Applications for explaining immunization and portfolio dedication are presented. An EXCEL Solver based fixed income portfolio optimization model is discussed and scenarios for minimizing duration and maximizing convexity of the portfolio are presented. A discussion of liquidity risk management measures including ratios and analyses for measuring liquidity risk, limits for managing the risk, general and specific requirements for developing a contingency funding plan and liquidity enhancement tactics for company specific and systemic crisis. A methodology for stress testing liquidity using a Value at Risk (VaR) based approach for a fixed income portfolio is also discussed. The book concludes with a case-study for assessing why bank regulations fail. This simulation results based study looks at the efficacy of Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) as an indicator of bank performance and seeks to identify a more valuable leading indicator or target account for monitoring bank performance and health.
