Project Announcement: Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning to Improve Supply Chain Management – Phase III

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on a multiphase CTMA initiative to develop the strategy and verify/validate prototype software for a maintenance organization’s use of artificial intelligence/machine learning, with advanced mathematical algorithms in supply chain management to increase parts availability and reduce customer wait time.

Efficiencies will be realized by providing recommendations and a roadmap for algorithms using transactional data to forecast a more accurate mix of high demand parts and will provide for a resilient supply chain management strategy that demonstrates cost avoidance return.  The in-depth analysis and implemented capability will be used to inform future investment strategies that can directly impact three crucial areas of focus: Pacific Deterrence Initiative (PDI), acceleration of the integration of autonomous capabilities within the manned/unmanned kill chain, and the potential to accelerate the divestment of legacy systems.

Specific objectives for this third phase include:

  • Increasing gross issue effectiveness
  • Decreasing customer wait time
  • Increasing full mission capable availability rates
  • Optimizing supply chain endpoints
