Improving Supply Availability & Organic Industrial Base (OIB) Performance through Management – Phase II

NCMS Project #: 140966

Problem: Army Materiel Command (AMC) is embarking on a multi-year effort to make step-change improvements in its contribution to maintenance and sustainment of Army systems by aligning its resources, processes, and efforts on outputs that support maintenance and sustainment in alignment with the Army’s strategy. AMC seeks to develop and make maximum use of decision support tools, backed by effective metrics and reliable data to improve its operations and provide predictive readiness for units and commanders.

Benefit: Improved coordination between commercial entities and their government customers will drive more efficient collaboration, eliminate waste, and improve economic output for the combined public and private manufacturing sector.

Solution/Approach: The foundation of this capability lies in establishing an outcome-focused cascaded metrics framework supported by decision-support tools that will enable AMC to better understand, manage and communicate its performance as it seeks to optimize Supply Availability and OIB operations to support Army maintenance and sustainment. Phase II of this effort will provide an independent analysis of the advantages and disadvantages in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and cost of transitioning the materiel support mission at the Army’s repair depots to DLA.
