In Property Accountability, the newer "Stock Number Inquiry" (Inquiries - Catalog - Stock Number Inquiry) that was implemented with eCatalog functionality is missing a grid column option to select and add the Maintenance Group ID field value for inquiry searches/extract output that the legacy/original PA "Stock Number" labeled inquiry provides as a field option. Navy needs to move to using the newer inquiry due to the nature of the old inquiry pulling additional catalog data from the old NSWC PA Site ID (NW-SWC) which still resides in Navy's PA agency hierarchy, but is tied to the JO-SOCOM catalog. The newer "Stock Number Inquiry" is more efficient and does not appear to exhibit this behavior, but is missing the referenced and required grid column option being requested.
Add "Maint Group ID" selectable option (Grid Options - Columns) in the newer "Stock Number Inquiry" in Property Accountability.
Yes - Navy has a DPAS interface with external maintenance systems in our 4 Naval Shipyards. Assets are added or removed from DPAS report to that interface daily. Thus, we need access to the Maint Grp ID field to review/identify all applicable stock numbers set to interface and those stock numbers that are set to interface for corrective action necessary to keep the DPAS assets reporting to the external maintenance programs at the shipyards.
Other organizations aside from Navy may benefit from the addition of this additional grid column option in the newer Stock Number Inquiry as well.
This would provide additional data to all users within our agency although a large, but limited number of personnel would require it.
