02031 Auto Assign Serial Numbers PA,Registry (SA/LW) AF: A4/HAF FH-AFHAF New
Change Request: Process Improvement

Description:
As part of the receipt process,the serial number is a mandatory input. However, there are instances were a serial number has not been assigned to the asset.  Currently the DAF manages the assignment of serial number on a local log that is managed in the the Equipment Accountability Element (EAE). However, the receipt is processed in the receiving section, which would require the receiving section to stop the receipt process until they get a serial number assigned. This could cause a backlog of frustrated cargo until serial numbers are assigned.
 
Recommended:
Build the capability to auto assign a serial number during the receipt process. Create a radio button that can be engaged to assign the next available serial number.
 
Mission Critical:
As outlined in Department of Defense Instruction (DODI) 5000.64 paragraph 4.6, one of the minimum data elements an APSR must include is a serial number. There are some instances were a serial number was not assigned by the manufacture, however DPAS requires a serial number on the property record as part of the receipt process.
 
Benefits:
By implementing an automated process this reduces the risk of assigning a duplicate serial number and also alleviates the need to maintain a off-line serial number assignment log at each of our Logistics Readiness Squadrons.

02028 Warehouse Issue ILS-S Document Number Warehouse AF: GFM New
Change Request: Process Improvement

Description: 
AF GFM-A Warehouse module users have requested the capability to enter the document number, associated with a requisition, they receive from AF ILS-S into the Warehouse Issue process.  Entering the document number would replace the DPAS generated document number for this transaction.
 
Recommended:
On the LPWHN73 screen, provide the user the option to enter the original ILS-S document number ILS-S in the Warehouse Issue transaction or allow DPAS to generate the document number.  This could be similar to the generate serial number option in the warehouse receiving process (LPWHN19 screen) for serially managed items.
 
Mission Critical:
 
 
Benefits:

02026 DST Potential Source Document Materiel Management Army: ASA(ALT) New
Change Request: Policy/ Regulatory

Description:
The audit community has identified a materiel weakness within the Army processes as to how it is managing Class 7 items being issued to foreign countries via a Presidential Directive (PD).  To eliminate the materiel weakness, DA plans to incorporate the issuance of the equipment into its Decision Support Tool (DST).  There are plans to establish consolidation points that will be managed using the LMP and or GCSS-Army software.  To support this effort, DPAS will need to incorporate a the DST PSD (Potential Source Document) within its Customer Requisition process along with including the value in the DLMS 527D and 856S transmissions.  Consideration should also include incorporating the PSD within the PA Asset Disposition Transfer process.
 
Recommended:
1. Incorporate PSD and FMS Case Number into Customer Requisition and DLMS transactions.
2. Incorporate PSD, FMS Case Number, and Project Code into Asset Disposition Transfer and DLMS transactions.
3. Provide for updated DLMS 527D and 856S, should an ADC be issued to hold the PSD value.

02024 CICP Reversal Document Numbers Materiel Management AF GFM New
Change Request: New System process
 
Description: 
DAF CICPs send reversal transactions with references to document numbers that don't exist in DPAS; these transactions occurred before the CICP implemented in DPAS.  DPAS suspends these transactions resulting in inaccurate stock number inventory balances (which leads to further suspended transactions).  DAF needs a new solution to handle transaction reversals and these missing document numbers in the ICP Module to reduce the suspended transactions and report accurate inventory balances.  
 
Recommended:
A proposed solution was to load the document numbers associated with transactions that occurred before the CICP implemented in DPAS.  Alternative solution: remove the logic to check on the document number and simply accept the reversal transaction.  
 
Mission Critical:
 
 
Benefits:
Benefits: 1) The accuracy of the DAF CICP inventory balances would improve; 2) The number of suspended transactions would decrease; 3) Daily/Monthly inventory reconciliations would improve; 4) All contributes to accurate financial reporting; 5) DAF has many resources working to identify and correct suspended transactions; the solution would allow the resources to focus on other high priority tasks.
