Logistics, Supply Chain and Provisioning Support

Heading west into a dusky winter sunset, a convoy of semi tractor trailer flatbed trucks loaded with heavy, oversized United States Army tactical armored military land vehicles is hauling the freight along a remote stretch of expressway through the western USA state of Utah. NOTE: Vehicle details have been altered – with various subtractions and/or additions – to make them generic.

To maintain readiness, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) is charged with the acquisition, receipt, distribution and continuing support of thousands of programs and systems and millions of items, components, parts and assemblies. Procuring, storing and delivering the right items, constructed to the right specifications, to the right customer, in the right quantities is absolutely essential to maintaining readiness.

Unfortunately, the challenges are substantial.

Contract deliverables may be “out of sync” with the provisioning process, provisioning records can be difficult to update and may not be current, and there are widespread problems of incorrect, inconsistent, incomplete and just plain missing data within key acquisition and logistics support systems (e.g. FLIS, SAM, etc.). Together, these challenges make it increasingly difficult to confidently identify what is needed, where it can be obtained, how long it takes to receive it, and how many items should be procured.
