Updates for Audit Readiness 01524 Warehouse AF: USAFA New

Description
USAFA requires additional updates to the Issue, Return, Inquiry, and Member Profile processes to increase the efficiency and accuracy of inventory sales for audit readiness.

Recommended
Provide the ability to:

  • Excluding specific members or groups of members from being billed
  • Adding pricing information into the inquiries to look up potential charges
  • Displaying cost information before a sale is complete (both issue and returns)
  • Displaying cost information on the Issue/Return Receipts
  • Printing “Cash Issue” on the Issue Receipt if the issue was designated as a cash issue
  • Capturing Payment information for Cash Issues and returns that can be researched and exported at a later date

Mission Critical
This is mission critical. DPAS currently does not capture Payment information for cash issues nor does it provide the capability to query transactions that were paid by the member.  This leads to a gap in our audit readiness when USAFA needs to match a money order or transaction to an issue or return in DPAS.
There is also no way to calculate the total cost of a sale before the sale has been completed—we require cadets to provide a money order to cover the cost if they are not able to be billed. The cost must be known ahead of time.

Benefits
Implementing the proposed changes will reduce the time/cost and increase pricing accuracy for each member paid issue or return. It will also reduce the time/cost of audit research, increase the accuracy of our audit research, and produce the financial reporting that we require for our audits.

Point Assets to Mx Activities at Asset Level 01523 PA AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, when an asset is loaded in PA, it is assigned to one Mx Activity by Maint Grp Id via the Maint Mgmt Assign.  This means that all assets assigned to a specific UIC can only be pointed toward one specific Mx Activity only.  However, we need the capability to have assets assigned to one main UIC but have the option to point to several different Mx Activities when mission dictates.

Recommended
Recommend adding a feature to point assets to a specific Mx Activity at the asset level.  There are many AF units that are responsible for their assets on one property book (UIC) however, the assets are often spread across several different bases.  This creates a situation where we are forced to give bases access to several Mx Activities or have bases manually pass work order information to the base that the asset officially resides on.

Mission Critical
This is mission critical.  Having the work order maintenance history on all assets directly affects the assets life cycle, vital to projecting asset replacements.

Benefits
This change will vastly reduce time as it relates to work order reporting and accurately depict the assets operation and maintenance costs needed for projecting an assets end of life.

Users
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from accurate Mx Activity assignment.

Stock Item Update 01522 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
Improve process of loading stock numbers to warehouse sites. After a user is done loading a new stock number to the Logistics Catalog, they have to switch to the Stock Item tab to load the stock number to the their warehouse. 

Recommended
Recommend having a "prompt box” asking the user if they want to add the new stock number to their stock item list. When the customer selects "Yes", the system is directed to the Add Stock Item window for the user to add the Stock Number to their Warehouse.  Also, consider adding a tab to the Add Stock Item window for the user to program Location Condition Code Defaults.

Mission Critical
Efficiently loading stock numbers is mission critical to expediting parts orders for mission generating vehicles that support launching aircraft and other air force base support functions.

Benefits
These changes will help speed up the Stock Number load process. The combination of three different transactions into one will also reduce transaction time.

Users
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from a faster way to associate Stock Numbers to their Warehouses.

Modify Materiel Control Officer Role 01521 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
Recommend updating Materiel Control Officer Role by adding "R" to Report Manager under Program ID: LPWHR82 "Inventory Over Under".

Recommended
Adding the report will assist users to increase or decrease their inventory levels as needed and aid users with future order demand decisions.

Mission Critical
AFI 24-302 mandates Materiel Control to monitor stock items parameters based on demand. 

Benefits
The ability to manage stock levels based on demand will ensure availability of essential items and reduce waste allowing managers to make fact-based funding allocations. 

Users
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from having the ability to analyze on-hand quantities and adjust replenishment parameters.

Add Software Version field in M&U 01520 MU AF: SPT EQUIP New

Description
DPAS M&U does not have a data field specifically for software version numbers.  This is a requirement for configuration control of automated test systems (ATS) and verification of ATS software version prior to performing certain operations.

Recommended
Add (to M&U) a new field or the ability to designate an existing field for dedicated use as Software Version field.  Field must be able to be part of an inquiry for NSN, Part Number, Serial Number, or Asset ID, with the Software Version value being returned as part of the inquiry.

Mission Critical
This is mission critical.  However, a dedicated field is not critical.  We need a field to document software version that is retrievable upon inquiry, that we can retain for future use. 

Benefits
Improved configuration control and Operational Safety, Suitability and Effectiveness, ATS/Weapon System cyber-security, and more accessible information for verification prior to performing certain critical tasks.

Users
Only certain users - ATS users and those documenting maintenance on aircraft maintenance ATS.

Inventory Over Under Report Modification 01519 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
Recommend adjusting the Warehouse Module "Inventory Over Under" report by adding consumable outcome parameters (12 month increments).

Recommended
Adding fields with measurable data will assist users to increase or decrease their inventory levels as needed. By adding "Item Quantity Used in Last 12 Months"; "Item Quantity Backordered in Last 12 Months"; and "Recommended Adjustment" fields to the "Inventory Over Under" report will assist users with managing replenishment parameters programming and future order demand decisions.

Mission Critical
AFI 24-302 mandates Materiel Control to monitor stock items and adjust replenishment parameters based on demand. 

Benefits
The ability to manage stock levels based on demand will ensure availability of essential items and reduce waste allowing managers to make fact-based funding allocations. 

Users
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from having the ability to analyze on-hand quantities and adjust replenishment parameters.

MISC ADD 01518 Warehouse USMC: CSP New

Description
Currently in the DPAS-WM there is no way to associate a Physical Inventory Number to a MISC Add transaction.

Recommended
Recommend that a Reason Desc box be added to the Misc Add process so we are able to add the Physical Inventory number.  

Mission Critical
Yes, Having this functionality will help us be able to associate the Physical Inventory Number to the MISC Add process helping with overall Audit Readiness. 

Benefits
Having this functionality will help us be able to associate the Physical Inventory Number to the MISC Add process helping with overall Audit Readiness and save man hours and trying to find this data. 

Users
All IIF/UIF

Parts Receive Date 01517 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
The DPAS M&U module does not populate the Part Receive Dt for items issued from Warehouse. M&U allows the user to enter a Part Receive Dt once part requests are established and this date is transferred over to the Maint Issue Inquiry in Warehouse. The Part Receive Dt from M&U is incorrect information for the Maint Issue Inquiry since this field should display the date parts were received into the Warehouse.

Recommended
We recommend that M&U auto populates the Part Receive Dt field in the sub-work order parts tab with the date that the parts are issued from the Warehouse. This field should still be editable for the user to change. If necessary, this field can be renamed to Part Issue Date to prevent any confusion.
In Warehouse, the Maint Issue inquiry needs to display the date that parts are received into the Warehouse. Backordered parts need to be monitored and should update their status accordingly in the Maint Issue inquiry. The backorder date is currently updated when the part enters this status but the Estimated Deliver Dt is not updating in this inquiry and the user is unable to change it once the Due-In is created. The user needs the ability to update the Estimated Delivery Dt for backordered items and these dates need to reflect in the Maint Issue inquiry. Lastly, the Part Receive Dt needs to update in the Maint Issue inquiry to reflect the date that  the parts are received into the Warehouse.

Mission Critical
AFI 24-302 mandates that Materiel Control initiates, monitors and follows up on part requests.  This AFI also mandates that Materiel Control checks and verifies the need for backordered parts (non-mission capable & delayed) daily.

Benefits
Having receipt/issue dates in M&U will provide better accountability of parts issued to work orders. In Warehouse, having correct estimated delivery and received dates will provide status accuracy and reduce research time since all information will display in one inquiry.

Users
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from having accurate receive dates for items in M&U and Warehouse.

Green Procurement Program 01516 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
DOD established a Green Procurement Program that gives preference to EPA-designated recycled-content vehicular products and United States Department of Agriculture-designated bio-based products. Vehicle Management is required to maintain a log of all Green Procurement purchases.

Recommended
Recommend adding features to receiving process to collect information needed to create a Green Procurement Report in the DPAS Warehouse. We suggest adding a "Green Procurement" check-box to the receiving process for users to identify items that fall under this criteria. The system should have an extra window during the receiving process or extra fields in the verification window for items identified as "Green Procurement" products. The extra fields need to capture the following information:

  • Product Category: Drop-down options should be (Sorbent, Tire, Coolant, Engine Oil, Gear Oil, Hydraulic Fluid, and Other Lubricants)
  • Product Type: Drop-down options should be (New/Virgin, Re-Refined, Recycled, Bio-Based, or Retreated)
    Procurement Exception: Drop-down options should be (None; Excessive ETA; Manufacture Requirement; No Bio/Recycled Material; Retread Not Available Locally; Spacecraft/Launch Support; Tactical Asset; T.O. Exception; Mission Essential Support; Unreasonable Cost; Other)
  • Size: Open field for user to enter Tire Size

All the information collected along with other fields need to be combined into a Green Procurement Report. The report needs to list all historical acquisition records for items that fall under this criteria with the ability to filter by different tier levels. The report should display the following fields: Date, Product Category, Product Type, Document Type, Document Sub Type, Procurement Exception, Quantity, Unit of Issue, Stock Number, Size, Total Cost.

Mission Critical
Yes. The use and documentation of Green Procurement Items is mandated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency; Section 6002 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)

Benefits
This system upgrade will centralize Green Procurement information in one place and it will satisfy EPA requirements for all DPAS users. Also, users will no longer have to log/track GPP information using other local trackers and therefore save time/man hours.

Users
The entire DoD will benefit from having Green Procurement data centralized in the Warehouse Module.

Physical Inventory Selection Improvement Location 01515 Warehouse AF: VSCOS New

Description
During the Physical Inventory process when selecting a single facility, the quick search does not default to the zones and locations built within selected facility.  All zones and locations are shown regardless of facility selected. This makes it difficult with selecting specific zones if the zone names are labeled with the same name.

Recommended
We recommend progressive restriction for facility selections.  Example: If Facility A is selected, allow only zones, locations, containers built within Facility A to be listed as selection options.

Mission Critical
This is critical because we utilize zones to manage programs that exists in different facilities and have the same Zone ID.

Benefits
Filtering down selection options based on upper level will save time when creating new location inventories.

Users
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from filtering down location options based on upper level selections.

Improve Pop-Up Windows 01514 Warehouse SPECWARCOM New

Description
There are multiple processes that have pop-up windows that are part of the functionality in order to complete each step. The size of the pop-up window is currently set at a default size and there is no option to enlarge. Require the ability to maximize the pop-up window.

Recommended
Create a maximize icon at the top right corner next to the exit screen icon, allowing user to manipulate the screen with easy. This will prevent user scrolling up and down on the wrong window.

Mission Critical
Mission Critical - Due to Maintenance requirement mandate. Maintenance assessments and repairs must be accomplished in accordance with current standards required by NAVSEASYSCOMINST 8370.2D and COMNAVSPECWARCOMINST 8020.2A. Maintenance assessments are required prior to SEAL/SB Team deployment. The IDTC time-line does not allow wholesale asset turn-in for maintenance. Assessments and repairs must be conducted while assets remain in SEAL/SWCC OICs/AOICs custody. Assessment results and repair parts usage must be documented when assets are not in the custody of the accountable armory.

Benefits
This will allow NSW Armories to maintain their current operational level of support with minimal impact to the amount of time it takes to perform COMNAVSEASYSCOM and COMNAVSPECWARCOM required armory maintenance actions.

Users
This currently applies to Armory users within NSW, but it is foreseeable that it could be applied to other departments within the command at a later date.

All Functionality 01513 Warehouse SPECWARCOM New

Description
After user executes a 'my query', any time a filter is applied or changed within the grid, the 'my query' originally selected defaults back to the standard default grid view.

Recommended

  1. Allowing those using a 'my query' be able to apply different filters within their query to complete their current task at hand.
  2. When the user cancels out their filter do not allow the 'my query' to disappear and have the standard grid options reappear.

Mission Critical
Mission Critical - The user is having to stop what they were doing in order to get back to their saved query which is causing more time wasted rather then completing the task to meet their mission at hand.

Benefits
This will allow NSW Armories to maintain their current operational level of support with minimal impact to the amount of time it takes to complete their task.

Users
This currently applies to Armory users within NSW, but it is foreseeable that it could be applied to other departments within the command at a later date.

Improve Unit Return 01512 Warehouse SPECWARCOM New

Description
The Unit Return Search Criteria does not allow user to search by Item Description. Armory users may not have the stock number on hand or may have multiple of that item.

Recommended
Include the Intellisense Item Description field in the Search Criteria for users to during a Unit Return.

Mission Critical
Mission Critical - Accountability must be accomplished in accordance with current standards required by NAVSEASYSCOMINST 8370.2D and COMNAVSPECWARCOMINST 8020.2A. Maintenance assessments are required prior to SEAL/SB Team deployment. The IDTC time-line does not allow wholesale asset turn-in for maintenance. Assessments and repairs must be conducted while assets remain in SEAL/SWCC OICs/AOICs custody. Assessment results and repair parts usage must be documented when assets are not in the custody of the accountable armory.

Benefits
This will allow NSW Armories to maintain their current operational level of support with minimal impact to the amount of time it takes to perform COMNAVSEASYSCOM and COMNAVSPECWARCOM required armory maintenance actions.

Users
This currently applies to Armory users within NSW, but it is foreseeable that it could be applied to other departments within the command at a later date.

"Select All" Functionality 01511 Warehouse SPECWARCOM New

Description
Allow user the ability to add their preferred Items per page within their 'My Queries'. Also, allow the ability to be able to 'Select All' as one "items per page" options.

Recommended

  1. Add option to default the number of assets viewed on one page within the Grid Options under "My Queries"
  2. Provide an option to "view all" assets within one page.

Mission Critical
Mission Critical - Being able to complete a task/process without having to spend mission essential time on loading pages of assets with the desired number of items per page.

Benefits
This will allow NSW Armories to maintain their current operational level of support with minimal impact to the amount of time it takes to complete their task. Commands have anywhere to 1,000-60,000 assets in their inventory. Being able to have the option to "view all" assets on one screen will cut their process time down dramatically in order to meet their mission. Having the option to have the number of items defaulted onto screen is another improvement with meeting their mission.

Users
This currently applies to Armory users within NSW, but it is foreseeable that it could be applied to other departments within the command at a later date.

Improve Unit Return 01510 Warehouse SPECWARCOM New

Description
During a Unit Return, the assets are populated and user has the option to arrange the column in ascending or descending alphabetical or numerical order. When selecting the serial number to arrange in order then selecting the stock number to arrange in order, the serial number reverts to previous setting of not being in order. DPAS should allow user to select primary and secondary sorting or simply sort by stock number then sub-sort by serial.

Recommended
Allow the sorting option to work similar to the way Microsoft Excel's column filter option operates. By first selecting the serial number column and arranging it in order, then selecting the nomenclature column to arrange in order. Which leaves the serial numbers still in order.

Mission Critical
Mission Critical - Accountability must be accomplished in accordance with current standards required by NAVSEASYSCOMINST 8370.2D and COMNAVSPECWARCOMINST 8020.2A. Maintenance assessments are required prior to SEAL/SB Team deployment. The IDTC time-line does not allow wholesale asset turn-in for maintenance.

Improve Warehouse Activity Report 01509 Warehouse SPECWARCOM New

Description
Report LPWHR78 Warehouse Activity only captures the UIC. The account names are needed to identify what platoons the transactions were against. All transactions captured only contain unit's UIC and not the unit's name. Multiple units have the same UIC, creating accounts under the UIC were used to identify the platoons.

Recommended
List account name next to UIC for all transactions in the Warehouse Activity Report.

Mission Critical
Mission Critical - Accountability must be accomplished in accordance with current standards required by NAVSEASYSCOMINST 8370.2D and COMNAVSPECWARCOMINST 8020.2A. Maintenance assessments are required prior to SEAL/SB Team deployment. The IDTC time-line does not allow wholesale asset turn-in for maintenance.

Gray-out Condition Code 01508 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Current, M&U ability to reflect conflicting status codes (i.e. NMC and Condition Code A) will cause readiness reporting problems for AF aviation Support Equipment.

Recommended
Gray-out the Condition Code drop-down for AF aviation SE users.

Mission Critical
This is mission critical.  Conflicting status codes are not permitted and will cause readiness questions, particularly with nuclear certified equipment being used in nuclear operations.

Benefits
Improves accuracy of status reporting of support equipment for AF readiness reporting and program office sustainment planning.  Eliminates questionable status for users of the equipment.

Users
Only certain users - those documenting maintenance on aviation support equipment.

Add Sub-work-order State Code 01507 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Need option added to Sub-work order State Code that reflects work orders are closed, with discrepancies carried forward to a new work order. This is necessary if a discrepancy is found during an inspection and the inspection is completed. The discrepancy would be carried forward to a new job that includes only that discrepancy.

Recommended
Add "Closed, Carried Forward" option to Sub-work-order State Code drop down.

Mission Critical
This is mission critical.  Most SE cannot be used if overdue inspection - we need to be able to close the inspection work order when the inspection is complete.

Benefits
Improves accuracy of status reporting of support equipment for AF readiness reporting and program office sustainment planning.

Users
Only certain users - those documenting maintenance on aviation support equipment.

FAST Projections 01506 MU OSD New

Description
Fleet Cost Projections required for FAST reporting needs loading three times a year.  Would be beneficial to load entire Agency at one time.

Recommended
Automate the manual Projection process in DPAS where the final numbers can be pulled at one time and loaded to FAST.  Also create a FAST Budget role for access to this functionality only.

Mission Critical
Costing reporting is a mandated requirement within FAST.

Benefits
Reduces time and improves data integrity if we automate in DPAS.

Users
Only the DPAS user in M&U that manages fleet or fleet budget.
