11:00-12:00 Logistics Response Time

Commercial Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Standards for DoD Logistics Business Transactions
Lt Col Richard Modell, Chair, Logistics EDI Integrated Product Team, JECPO

Defense Reform Initiative Directive #48, signed by the DEPSECDEF, calls for migration of the Department's logistics business practices to use of commercial EDI standards, focusing on American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12 transactions. Guidance and policy are being developed for this requirement as well as a phased implementation service/agency implementation plan through the Integrated Product Team process led by JECPO.

Automated Non-Standard Requisitioning System (ANSRS)
Doug Bittner, NAVICP

ANSRS streamlines the Navy requisitioning process through an efficient, user friendly system that reduces logistics response time. The system uses enhanced up-front technical screening, built-in validations and edits, enhanced files integrity for follow-on support, reduced workload and infrastructure, and automated paperless process flow between the customer and procurement site. ANSRS automates the current manual process of ordering forms using ANSI ASC X12 transactions for transmittal of procurement data to the procuring activity.

13:30-14:30 Rapid Response

Integrated Digital Environment (IDE) for Major End Items
Ed Kincaid, Oklahoma City-Air Logistics Center

The Rapid Response to Critical Systems Requirements (R2CSR) IDE will develop an electronic information communications infrastructure and will provide direct and substantial return on investment by enabling reduction in Procurement Lead Times on critical selected parts. The rapid response capability will be facilitated by providing Simulation Based Acquisition and reduce department downtime.

Web Based Enterprise Wide IDE
Kevin Hamm, Lockheed Martin

This project integrates an extended enterprise for partners, suppliers, and customers for all aspects of the product life-cycle. It serves over 44 programs and 2500 users at more than 100 different sites. Topics include Product Data Management, supplier management expectations and support, competitive advantages in proposals, government insight versus oversight, security, training, teaming agreements, and development methodology.

14:45-15:45 In-transit Visibility

Cargo Movement Operations System (CMOS)
SSG/ILTT Susan Kirkland, HQ US Air Force

CMOS is a transportation support system that supports the warfighter by automating cargo processing during peacetime and wartime. Electronic commerce is supported through over 14 electronic interfaces, including the following initiatives: GFM and End Item Transaction Reporting System Industry Information Processor: Automatic Identification Technology Management Reform Memorandum 15 Global Transportation Network, TBD Joint Total Asset Visibility, TBD

16:00 -17:00 Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Logistics
Sandra Kline, NAVICP

The project objective is to design and prototype the full suite of EDI transactions needed within the supply chain management system. This project will enable the Services to incorporate third party logistics practices and data requirements into our legacy environment through three phases:

  • Prototype a variety of third party logistics and direct vendor scenarios with vendors.
  • Develop the supply chain data and process models to use these models as the baseline for selecting a commercial Enterprise Resource Planning System.
  • The successful prototyping of the Navy/DoD reengineered DVD/CLS process using new or modernized logistics systems.

Improving Supply Chain Management
Maurice Lethbridge, Electronic Commerce Product Specialist, Netscape

In the world of on-time logistics and just-in-time manufacturing and supply, one of the most measured activities is the timeliness of shipments and tracking of freight movement. One of the primary objectives of the modern enterprise is the ability to track orders, whether to suppliers or from customers, from the beginning to the end of the supply chain. Information on a particular shipment would then be available to anyone inside or outside the organization via Intranets, Extranets and the World Wide Web.

Just-In-Time Production and Distribution
Richard Farber, Federal Express

This is a discussion of the integration of supply chain information to facilitate just-in-time production and distribution. Emphasis will be placed on direct ship capabilities and information connectivity among supply chain stakeholders. Will present real examples of animated flows.
