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.
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 - 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.
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.
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.
