Incorporate pRFID capability into Individual Issue 01638 Warehouse Leidos New

Description
The DPAS Individual Issue process does not currently support issue by pRFID number.  pRFID numbers are unique.  By scanning the pRFID that is related to inventory, the issue can be made efficiently and accurately.  The DPAS PM has requested that DPAS be able to provide a proof of principle (POP) to the U.S Coast Guard for their cadet clothing issues.

Recommended
The POP will consist primarily of bulk clothing, which could be hundreds/thousands of identical items being received. To support this POP:

  • DPAS will need a method to efficiently capture and associate the pRFIDs with the inventory during the receiving phase, or possibly have a separate pRFID process that could augment receiving.
  • the goal would be to modify the existing Individual Issue process to enable the scan/capture of the pRFIDs that are attached to the items being issue displaying the Stock Nbr / Qty in the issue process.

For the POP, it is not necessary to have DPAS create a process to assign pRFIDs to bulk materiel, or to implement pRFID into the Individual Return process. These modifications would only be needed should issue by pRFID become a core DPAS process.

Mission Critical
This is a DPAS PM requirement.

Benefits
Reduced manpower through automated scans, and improve accuracy.

Users
All users who perform Individual Issues and have items tagged with a pRFID.

Reconstitute Planned Pick for HHT 01637 Warehouse Leidos New

DPAS Tech Refresh - Common Asset Model 01635 Enterprise Leidos New

Description
Establish a DPAS common asset model to support the DPAS Tech refresh work effort.

Recommended
DPAS will provide a centralized asset structure that is accessible to all DPAS processes and platforms.
This structure will contain a core set of attributes that are common to all DoD business processes. 
Process specific attributes will extended off of the Common Asset structure in a "hub and spoke" model.
The Common Asset structure will provide an enterprise wide method to uniquely identify each asset in DPAS and share those common attributes throughout the system.
Microservice API(s) will be established, use-able by all development teams to insert assets into the new asset structure. 
This SCR requires that the Common Asset structure support both the new model and the existing, disparate asset models in DPAS today.
The Common Asset structure should maintain an in-sync balance between old and new models until all processes have transitioned to the new Common Asset structure.
Reports and monitoring will be provided to monitor/ensure balance between the asset model and the legacy DPAS application as organizations/DPAS transitions to the tech refresh framework.

Mission Critical
This was mandated as a requirement of Tech Refresh.

Benefits
The separation of the common asset attributes and the extension tables by specific platform provides a more efficient application design which limits risk by isolating changes to the asset model to specific platforms and its related asset attributes. 
Provides full visibility of the full life cycle of the asset, regardless of activity or platform.

PA DLMS 856S/527D Changes 01632 Enterprise Leidos New

Description:
When the 527D/856S DLMS process was added into PA, the MILS fields were hard-coded. AFSOC needs us to change how this process works to allow users to select values for those hard-coded fields, as well as make the RIC fields optional. Additionally, we need to fix the 527D/856S process to inbound correctly to the Warehouse module via the DLMS processor.

Recommended:
In PA, when the 527D/856S DLMS process is executed as Disposition>Transfer Out-Outside DPAS, the MILS fields should be available for users to select values, as well as make the RIC fields optional for the "from" and "to" addresses.
Also, fix the 527D/856S process to inbound correctly to the Warehouse module via the DLMS processor, and fix the UIC DoDAAC/CAGE add/delete process to allow for DLMS fields to be added/changed when a DoDAAC/CAGE is re-added after it's been deleted.

Mission Critical:
Required by AFSOC

Benefits:
Improves the function of these DLMS processes out of PA

Users:
Certain users who utilize DLMS transactions out of PA Disposition

Nuclear, Reimbursable, Mission Critical Indicator 01631 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
DPAS does not identify an asset as nuclear certified, reimbursable or mission critical when opening a work order. Fleet analysts and technicians need a simple, standard and repeatable solution to distinguish nuclear certified, reimbursable or mission critical assets to properly manage, direct actions or perform maintenance.

Recommended
Create Nuclear indicator (NCE), nuclear restricted indicator (NCE-R) and nuclear restricted remarks (i.e., Restricted Remarks) fields to reflect an asset as nuclear certified in 3 locations; the Custodian Asset Report (inventory), the MAM in M&U and on the asset work order (electronic and/or print). 
Add checkbox in the "fields" section of both PA and M&U inquiries allowing queries and quick identification of nuclear certified assets. 
Ideally, load the nuclear indicator against the NSN at the catalog level with a field indicating "NCE". 
However, the Air Force requires editing field because assets within a specific NSN become restricted and the ability to remove the NCE designator from a specific asset, switching to NCE-R. 
Recommend accompanying the NCE-R designator field with a "restricted comments box" with enough free text characters to easily input why restriction exists on a nuclear asset. 
Additionally, add two additional fields identifying Reimbursable and Mission Critical assets. 
Recommend drop down field selections with A/U/D on the MAM. Locate the fields on the Basic tab. 
Name the Fields and drop down selections: "Remb/Refd" with provisions to choose either "3" for reimbursable or "4" for refundable" and "Msn Crt" displays a "C" for mission critical. 
Blank Fields for the conditions not applicable. 
The field names Remb/Refd and Msn Crt must reflect on the basic work order (electronic and print) when processing a work order.
Additionally, all fields (to include cost centers) must be easily identifiable when pulling a Maint Asset inquiry or a work order/sub work order inquiry. 

Mission Critical
Critical.  It is imperative Air Force managers and technicians know a nuclear certified asset's certification to handle special cargo.  Nuclear certified assets follow additional rules governing maintenance; requiring the technician an easily identifiable indicator on the work order for compliance with AFI 63-125, Nuclear Certification Program.  Furthermore, it is imperative an easily identifiable indicator and inquiry for refundable or reimbursable assets   to manage sustainment funds as well as the ability to easily identify mission critical assets per AFI 24-302, Vehicle Management.

Benefits
Benefits of implementing change includes safety and movement of special weapons, proper accountability of nuclear support equipment mission sets, saving research time opening a work orders, potential improper maintenance actions on nuclear surety assets, and proper visual restriction of nuclear certified status.  Additionally, save time identifying refundable and reimbursable assets as well as improve accuracy of financial reporting.

Users
All Air Force asset managers (i.e., vehicles and equipment) utilize this information for day-to-day management purposes.

MAINTENANCE ASSET UTILIZATION INQUIRY REPORT FOR DPAS - RRAD INQUIRY AND RFI 01629 MU Army New

Description
There is no way to divide the equipment out when running utilization report. By adding office id to this report we could sort by Cost Centers. RRAD Equip Control Clerk, Jose Arredondo (903-334-2115) asks, "Can the "Office ID" option found in the Dispatch Inquiry report be made available in the Maint Asset Utilization Inquiry report?"

Recommended
To add office ID (Cost Center) to utilization reports. RRAD states: "I am needing this information on the Maint Asset Utilization Inquiry report in order to separate or sort by Office ID."

Mission Critical
This is a critical to reporting to the users and the management for the depot to right size the fleet at RRAD. TACOM (MSC) concurs based on site visits for the Command Inspection Program that this would be very beneficial to their organization and for our analysis.

Benefits
Reduces time to look up each vehicle. With this added field we would be able to sort by office ID(Cost Center). As well, there becomes an ability to better manage fleet utilization. Again, as well, the MSC can track the subordinate organization for cost effectiveness in fleet management during VAM and CIP.
