The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is migrating some of its logistics processes to DPAS. One of those processes is 2 warehouses that hold USCG uniforms. The uniforms are distributed / sold through the U.S Coast Guard Exchanges. To support asset visibility, the USCG is requesting that DPAS provide visibility of the uniform inventory held by the exchanges.
Modify the DPAS to inbound USCG Exchange uniform inventory and provide a view of the inventory. Phase 1 will be an overlay type file that contains the inventory by Exchange and Stock Nbr. For Phase 2 (separate SCR), the Exchanges will provide; Receipts, Issues and Inventory Adjustments by Stock Nbr and Store to enable Demand Planning. The files would be provided to DPAS via DAAS GEX.
The USCG has indicated that the visibility of the uniform inventory is a must.
Improves the management of the USCG uniforms, which ensures the correct qtys are on hand to prevent shortages and overages.
The change is currently limited to benefiting the USCG. It may assist others that may require similar functionality (Import and provide visibility of inventory from external sources).
