Development for Operational Transition Procedures and Sustainment Analysis for Global Logistics Information Systems’ (GLIS) Supply and Maintenance Functions

NCMS Project #: 140727

Problem: Industry and DoD are both migrating away from stove-piped legacy logistics information systems in order to adequately perform their supply maintenance functions. As industry and DoD modernize the logistics information architecture, there is a clear gap that has arisen between user knowledge specific to their functional business processes and initial training during post deployment of these systems.

Benefit: This partnership will result in a cost effective solution that has a shorter transition period and well trained GCSS MC Cadre and a more efficient process from which software enhancements can be developed and implemented improving the overall capability.

Solution/Approach: In an effort to address these implementation gaps, industry has developed and is currently maturing various organizational change management procedures to derive best practice solutions. Through this collaborative initiative, industry and DoD partners will assess global ERP implementation deployment strategies, current implementation gaps, and develop optimal draft operation procedures for supply and maintenance activities as well as identify training gaps.
