02045 External ICP 846R without Project Code Warehouse USMC New
Change Request: Process Improvement

Description: 
USMC is utilizing Navy ERP as its ICP with their Albany warehouse operation supported by DPAS. It's been reported that Navy ERP manages its inventory by RSA (Remote Storage Activity), Stock Nbr, and Condition Cd.  The DLMS 846R End of Day (EOD) inventory balance file that DPAS produces includes "Project Code" as part of the reporting. Currently Navy ERP is not designed to summarize RSA generated DLMS 846R transaction sets to the level the inventory is managed by Navy ERP.  Thus the inventory totals for items that do contain a project code that DPAS is reporting do not match the inventory totals that Navy ERP has.  The proposed solution is for DPAS to generate its EOD inventory reporting  balance without including the "Project Code" in the group by.
 
Recommended:
1)  Create a version of the DLMS 846R EOD transaction set that does not include "Project Code" in the group by in the inventory count (RSA, Stock Nbr, and Condition Cd).
2)  Add this DLMS 846R EOD option as a configuration setting for the warehouse similar to the setting that enables the Warehouse to generate a DLMS 867I Issue transaction set that is required by Navy ERP.
 
Mission Critical:
This change would enable DPAS to generate the DLMS 846R EOD transaction set with inventory counts that will match the inventory balance of Navy ERP and other ICPs that may not manage inventory at Project Code level.  
 
Benefits:
Providing this option enables systematically inventory balance reconciliation between the RSA and ICP via the the DLMS 846R EOD transaction set.  Navy ERP adjusts its inventory using the Qty reported within the DLMS 846R EOD.  Currently this is resulting in invalid inventory counts.  
 
Frequency: Daily
 
Users:
Navy ERP is the only known external ICP where DPAS Warehouse is being used as the RSA.
02044 Multi Search serial number Warehouse Army New
Change Request: Process Improvement

Description:
DPAS lacks the capability to search for and select multiple serial numbers simultaneously. This capability needs to be added to the "Inventory Master Sector" across processes.
 
Recommended:
Create a field capability that enables users to paste multiple serial numbers into a single field. This enhancement will allow DPAS to search for and select all the serial numbers entered in the field simultaneously.
 
Mission Critical:
Yes, all DPAS users who currently handle a large number of serialized assets will have the capability to search for and select multiple serial numbers simultaneously, instead of one by one. This proposed modification aims to significantly reduce the man-hours required for searching and selecting serial numbers. These improvements will lead to overall cost savings for the U.S. government and streamline warehouse movements with greater control and accuracy.
 
Benefits:
This solution enhances accuracy for large scale serial number movements across the force and provides a total cost savings by reducing manhours and time-to-task required to accurately issue large scale amounts of serial numbered equipment ranging in the hundreds or thousands.
 
Frequency: Daily
 
Users:
This solution would benefit all user operating within WM, (or our community that is ~500 users.

02042 Stock Number Edit PA,MU,Warehouse,Materiel Management,FSM,Registry (SA/LW) Leidos New
Change Request: Process Improvement
 
Description:
Currently the Stock Number AUD (LPCTN01) disables fields for edit due to the stock number being externally sourced or having associations to assets or inventory control numbers. Not providing the ability to allow the user to modify as many fields as possible, limits their ability to make the change increases the time to get their data as well and places an effort on the Help Desk and Development Teams to make the change.  The DPAS team should review the fields that are disabled to determine which can be activated.  If the system requires a Mass Sock Nbr change feature to support external interfaces, as well and financial reporting, this could be a method to support enabling the user as well as supporting AESIP / FLIS changes that are not currently being processed.
 
Recommended:
As a minimum, the following fields should be opened up for edit on LPCTN01 Stock Nbr AUD
Type Asset Code & Asset Category Code – These can be opened for edit in warehouse and PA as long as financial accounting is supported for OM&S and Fixed Assets.  
Shelf Life Code - Should allow adjusting between types I & II A job must first be put into place before we can convert to type 0 as this would constitute a bulk inventory roll-up, or the override flag cold automatically be set on the record to retain the shelf life expiration dates.
Accounting Requirements Code (ARC), DEMIL Code, CIIC
 
Mission Critical:
Implementing the capability to allow for more attribute change via automation will assist with keeping the external catalogs feeds with DPAS data in sync through automation.

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:
Currently, DPAS generates its own document number for each warehouse issue transaction.  This solution would provide the AF CICP warehouse user with the ability to reconcile their warehouse issue transactions with the requisitions received from ILS-S via the document number.
