Supply Item Logistics Capability Initiative – Phase II

NCMS Project #: 140946

Problem: Maintenance and sustainment activities are often overlooked when a company is assessing its digital system needs. But as businesses continue to look for ways to effectively move from IT development to full solution production, these organizations need more than just a system, but a big picture view of all functions within an enterprise. As such, Phase II of this project will utilize U.S. Navy infrastructure as a surrogate for an eventual industry, state and/or local government solution that satisfies vast public need requirements.

Benefit: Results derived from the project will provide new functionality that could be used by the operational forces, increasing productivity and provide a streamlined process for all forces to utilize. In particular maintenance and sustainment activities can be measured to ensure efficiencies are taking place and that all equipment and other systems are enhancing warfighter readiness.

Solution/Approach: Project efforts to-date have capabilities deployed by both the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force and leverage those capabilities to meet TOA/PGI requirements. Gaps in requirements vs. platform capabilities have been closed through modeling, configuration and interface development. Phase II efforts will use a combination of iterative “sprints” and interaction with subject matter experts to help the U.S. Navy determine and develop the most effective capabilities to enhance the overall effectiveness of the production system. Phase II objectives will include a roll-out strategy and a production-ready TOA/PGI solution.
