Development of Operational Transition Procedures & Sustainment Analysis for Global Logistics Information System (GLIS) Supply & Maintenance Functions – Close Out

NCMS Project #: 140925

Problem: Developing an enterprise-level, information-driven logistics program that provides the right logistics data at the right time and at the right place is an ongoing challenge for industry. While many ERPs are generally accepted as an effective logistics management system, their actual implementation has created several challenges for the end users.

Benefit: The ERP being used as a testbed in this initiative is fast becoming the “logistics management tool” model of choice for the commercial logistics community. This in turn has a direct benefit for the general public: enhanced logistics systems allow companies to provide goods and services to consumers at a faster rate, which not only increases consumer satisfaction, but also increases the speed at which goods, services, and money change hands, therefore benefiting the American economy.

Solution/Approach: GLIS Closeout will continue the implementation of new processes, procedures, and capabilities in this final phase of the ERP implementation. Additionally, a review of the entire Logistics Legacy and Migratory systems and applications will entail looking specifically at functionality not within GCSS-MC – nor integrated into it – to identify a portfolio modernization path and data strategy consistent with the HQMC Deputy Commandant of Logistics Portfolio strategy.
