SSAVIE INTERFACE 01754 Enterprise USSOCOM New
Description:
USSOCOM currently uses the Special Operations Asset Visibility Information Exchange (SSAVIE) system to support requisitions from SOF customers for non-standard items that cannot be cataloged by NSN. MARSOC and USASOC units use systems that do not allow for requisition of non-standard SOF items using their parent service systems. USSOCOM requires ability to take in requests from SSAVIE customers, and transmit the request into a DLMS format to DPAS as a 511-R requisition, and the ability to provide customer supply status/advice back to the requisitioner using the SSAVIE system.
 
Recommended:
1. DPAS generates a Prepositioned Materiel Receipt (PMR) for SSAVIE 511R (Requisition) received 2. 856S Shipment Status sent to SSAVIE customer via GEX file exchange 3. 527-R Materiel Release Acknowledgment (MRA) record pushed to SSAVIE via GEX file 4. Receive a MRA in SSAVIE and closeout the in-transit in ICP 5. Provide 869C (Cancellation) feature to and from SSAVIE 6. Provide 511M (modification) feature to and from SSAVIE 7. Provide 869A (Request for status) to and from SSAVIE 8. Provide 869F (Follow-up) to and from SSAVIE
 
Mission Critical:
Yes, this request is mission critical. Multiple PEO's within SOCOM will utilize these functional improvements to support all SOF Components. This process is required to process non-standard transactions to the SOF Components that utilize their Parent Service Logistics systems (USASOC and MARCO) units
 
Benefits:
The benefit to DPAS transacting to SSAVIE is the SOF units will have the means to order their supplies and have that data transmit to DPAS ICP instead of current system (SSAVIE to GOLDesp). The data flow also allows the Program Managers that buy and provide the material to see the transaction flow and unit receipts - this establishes an auditable transaction process
 
Users:
This impacts all users within SOCOM's agency that are not implementing DPAS at the tactical level.
NSN Substitution / DVD Capabilities 01753 Warehouse USSOCOM New
Description:
USSOCOM currently uses the DPAS Material Management module (ICP) to process requisitions from authorized customers. It provides the functionality that was initially requested. As more programs are transitioned to DPAS there is a need for additional functionality that is not currently supported. Specifically, 1) There is no capability for the item manager to issue a substitute item for the item ordered. In cases where the customer orders an obsolete or is no longer stocked item, the ICP must cancel the order and have the customer re-order the material against the new/updated NSN. This causes delays in the customer getting the material that they require. 2) There are times when items managed by the Item Manager are provided through Direct Vendor Delivery (DVD). There is a need to enable the Item Manager to select DVD in lieu of having to select a warehouse to fill the order.
 
Recommended:
1) Add the capability for the item manager to select a Substitute Item to fill the order. The capability should provide for partial fill with back order / cancellation of the remaining qty notifying the customer via the DLMS 870S of the changes to their order - Stock Nbr and fill qty. 2) Add the capability to provide for DVD as an option to fill an order. The DVD option will provide the customer with the contract nbr/delivery order nbr, qty and estimated ship date via the DLMS 870S transaction set.
 
Mission Critical:
Adding these 2 capabilities will provide DPAS MM with capabilities need to successfully process customer requisitions with reduced effort. It eliminates manual effort and reduces work for the Customer and Item Managers by providing functionality that MM does not currently provide.
 
Benefits:
The benefit to the ICP changes is greatly improved customer wait times and ability to fill on demand - the ICP can replace items ordered for the authorized replacement item without having to cancel existing orders, then force the tactical units to re-order the material. This change also gives the Item Manager to fill the items they have on hand, and partially cancel the remaining ordered quantity. This helps the PM especially when the PM is either no longer buying the item or needs to filed some quantity immediately until they make another purchase.
 
Users:
This impacts all tactical level users within the SOF community that requisition material from the USSOCOM Source of Supply.
Member Site Password Login 01752 PA USMC New
Description:
Currently the only way to enter the DPAS Member site is via Common Access Card (CAC). This presents a problem for Marines who don't have daily access to a computer to check their issues.
 
Recommended:
Have the ability to allow users to login into the member site with either their CAC or create a username and password they could associate with their accounts. This will allow Marines to access via mobile devices instead of needing to be on a desktop or laptop computer. This solution should allow the members to have the full access to the member site.
 
Mission Critical:
Yes, this allows Marines to access their accounts through multiple ways.
 
Benefits:
Implementing multiple ways to login into the Member site will improve the ability for Marines to login into their accounts whenever required. This reduces customers time it would take to create appointments or pull outstanding list.
 
Users:
Yes, any customer of the CSP who has an issue.
Member Site Store Front 01751 PA USMC New
Description:
Marines and Sailors place their orders for individual issued equipment only upon arrival at the Individual Issues Facility (IIF). This process creates a time burden on the customer & IIF associate and increases the opportunity for a return trip to the IIF due to equipment not in stock on the day of the initial visit. Overall, this current process decreases efficiency and increases labor costs to CSP.
 
Recommended:
Marines and Sailors place their orders for individual issued equipment only upon arrival at the Individual Issues Facility (IIF). This process creates a time burden on the customer & IIF associate and increases the opportunity for a return trip to the IIF due to equipment not in stock on the day of the initial visit. Overall, this current process decreases efficiency and increases labor costs to CSP.
 
Mission Critical:
This is a mission critical request. The fiscal constraints placed on the Marine Corps' Consolidated Storage Program necessitate streamlining issue/receipt processes. The implementation of an equipment ordering portal will reduce the overall cycle time of equipment issuing and return-trips due to equipment availability thereby reducing the overall labor costs for the program and Marine or Sailor wait time.
 
Benefits:
-Reduced labor cost 
-Reduced service time
 
Users:
All users who user individual issues or returns activities
2015_NSN IS and reference NSN 01750 Enterprise USAF New
Description:
The current program logic on the FSM Auth On-hand report does not take into consideration stock numbers that are a 'related NSN'. This is causing the FSM Auth On-hand product to either identify these related NSNs as excess and the Master NSN as shortages when in fact these NSNs can be used in lieu of the other.
 
Recommended:
Additionally within the Asset Management Inquiry, include I&S and 'Related NSN' as part of the data pull
 
Mission Critical:
Mission critical- currently the report is indicating that there are several shortages and excess based on the current program logic. This is hindering the DAF ability to properly report readiness as outlined in the CJCSI 3401.02B Enclosure A
 
Benefits:
Improves accuracy of or readiness reporting of assets physically on hand that meet the mission requirements
 
Users:

CDAS Equipment Asset Processing in DPAS 01749 PA USAF New
Description:
Air Force is currently recording its COMSEC/Crypto Equipment asset transactions in CDAS; however, the AF is transitioning from CDAS to ILS-S in 2022. Once the transactions are recorded in ILS-S, the Air Force needs to provide those transactions to DPAS (most likely the Property Accountability module) for accountability and financial reporting. Currently, there are no capital assets in the population of COMSEC/Crypto equipment in CDAS.
 
Recommended:
Need DPAS to receive, process and store the image copies of the DLMS transactions associated with these equipment items sent from the ILS-S COMSEC/Crypto warehouse SRAN. These transactions will consist of receipts, issues, shipments, condition code changes, inventory adjustments and disposals. Any capital assets within this population of COMSEC/Crypto assets would follow the existing AF processes for capital equipment in DPAS. In addition, need DPAS to perform end of day/end of month reconciliation to ensure DPAS matches ILS-S. It is expected the population of DLMS transactions will include: 527R, 824R, 832N, 867I, 945A, 947I, 846P, 846R and 536L. Also, 527D and 856 transactions may be necessary to record due-ins and track shipments to/from the warehouse. The 832N would be used to add new stock numbers to the DPAS catalog; the transaction would include the NSN, the Manufacturer’s Part Number, serial number and other elements per the DODI 5000.64. Additional discussions between DPAS and ILS-S re: sending transactions to ADVANA will be required.
 
Mission Critical:
Asset accountability and financial reporting is mandated. Need by date is June 2022.
 
Benefits:
This would provide accountability and financial reporting for AF COMSEC/Crypto equipment assets managed by the AF CCSD personnel in San Antonio, Texas. This solution would comply with the AF’s policy directing DPAS as the AF’s APSR for Equipment.
 
Users:
This affects the COMSEC/Crypto warehouse users.
 
Warehouse Location Delete Option 01748 Warehouse USAF New
Description:
Current system process prevents users from fully deleting a location within Warehouse when location associates to a record. After disassociating the record, the only option is placing location into "Inactive" status and location is still visible to user. Fully deleting location from the system requires a Helpdesk ticket submission for backend script execution.
 
Recommended:
Enable user level delete function after disassociating all records from the location allows users to select "Delete location" clearing warehouse and prevents unnecessary user visibility.
 
Mission Critical:
The ability to delete locations removes excess and unnecessary location/storage providing mission enhancement within the Warehouse
 
Benefits:
Improves accuracy and accountability of Warehouse operations, prevents receiving stock items to erroneous locations and eliminates additional time to correct errors.
 
Users:
Affects ALL users within our Component/Agency.
Telematics Current Mtr Rd Option 01747 MU USAF New
Description:
Current telematics file upload process captures distance reported from a select period and adds the value to the previous meter reading to capture the current meter reading. Using this process methodology fails to validate the accuracy of the previous meter reading and can lead to compounded errors if file upload continues. Telematics output files offer a data value for meter reading directly from the assets computer. Using this value ensures data integrity by eliminating human data entry and potential flaws.
 
Recommended:
Update the telematics file upload process to accept Current Meter Reading and not the current Distance value option. This process will log a Asset Utilization Transaction with an updated Current Mtr Rdg based on the value directly from the telematics file. Upload file using this method requires configuring the Telematics File template with the following headers; Vehicle Id (Asset Id), Rptd Dt, Current Mtr Rdng, Serial Nbr. Additionally, build validation check into the process to prevent the file uploading if the Current Mtr Rdg is negative in value compared to the previous meter reading within DPAS. This ensures user validates and corrects discrepancies prior to system data entry.
 
Mission Critical:
Mandated and critical. Having capability prevents erroneous data reporting into mandated sources (i.e., FAST). FAST reports included over 15,000 flags tied to utilization and mileage errors within DPAS. Using Telematics is the way forward eliminating errors and adjusting entry format streamlines interface for users ensuring accurate data entry.
 
Benefits:
Implementing this system change greatly improves DPAS data accuracy for FAST, sustainment budgeting and financial reporting.
 
Users:
This effects all M&U users within DF-VEHS along with other DoD agencies using DPAS as their Fleet Management Information System (FMIS).
Open Actions_Remarks 01746 MU SOCOM New
Description:
There is not a link option under the DPAS MU "Open Actions/Work Order" window to select Closed Work Orders to quickly generate a list of all closed work orders under the maintenance activity; additionally, the work order lists that are generated from the open actions links do not include the appropriate data fields to enable the user to easily identify which asset the work order is against and what repair/job it was opened for.
 
Recommended:
Add a link under the DPAS MU "Open Actions/Work Order" window for closed work orders, include the "Remarks" data field from the Work Order/Basic tab as one of the displayed data fields in the work order list (can be truncated some) and replace the "Asset ID" data field with the "Serial Nbr" data field (or add as an additional field) on the work order list so users can easily identify the craft hull number.
 
Mission Critical:
No
 
Benefits:
This solution will significantly reduce time for NSW DPAS MU users to navigate to the correct closed work orders to edit work order data fields with new or updated information.
 
Users:
Yes. All current NSW DPAS MU users are required to frequently update information in closed work orders.
Forms_Reports excel export 01745 MU SOCOM New
Description:
Reports scheduled under the Forms-Reports menu in the MU module can only be exported in .pdf file format. When scheduling reports, a drop-down menu is already present for selecting report format types, but the only option currently available is .pdf format. The Work Order report under Forms-Reports is the only MU report/inquiry that provides all work order and sub work order data elements in a single report. NSWC needs these data elements in excel format in order to conduct analytics on the maintenance data that is recorded in the system.
 
Recommended:
Modify the file format options for the reports generated within the Forms-Reports menu of MU to include the excel file format. Add the excel format option to the available options on the existing file format drop-down menu.
 
Mission Critical:
Yes. WARCOM N8 and the PEO-Maritime SOCOM PEO is required to calculate Mean Time Between Operational Mission Failures (MTBOMF) for NSWC combatant craft using data that is entered into the DPAS MU module via repair work orders. In order to calculate this metric from MU data the Work Order report needs to be available in excel file format.
 
Benefits:
The proposed solution will significantly reduce time in conducting data-manipulation of the currently limited MU reports in order to put the data in a usable format for performing analytics.
 
Users:
This problem affects all NSW DPAS MU users.
UTIL Modification for Boat Engine Hours 01744 MU SOCOM New
Description:
The current Utilization functionality available in the MU module is not sufficient to permit recording engine hours against boat assets. The current functionality only permits recording a single metered history for an asset, and only allows consecutively higher readings for each recording instance. This limitation does not permit NSW users to record engine meter readings for boats that have two engines, or to record a lower meter reading or "reset" the record when boat engines are replaced on an asset.
 
Recommended:
Maintain the current Utilization functionality within the MU work order/Utilization tab to record craft hull hours, but add the ability to assign engines to craft by engine serial number (or pull the components from PA if they are associated with the asset's record as serialized components) and to record engine hour meter readings in a work order for each assigned engine. Add this functionality similar to the way the Sub Work Order/Labor tab records labor hours for specific technicians (select engine by serial number from drop-down, enter current hour meter reading, click "Save", adds record as a row with current meter reading or updates existing record for a specified engine to current meter reading). When engines are replaced, record of previous engines that have been removed should remain associated with the parent asset's history, and a new engine should be added as a new row.
 
Mission Critical:
Yes. In order to record all required data elements of maritime asset maintenance and repair actions, MU work orders need to have the ability to record engine hours for each assigned engine in order to associate maintenance events appropriately to engine and craft age/run time.
 
Benefits:
The proposed solution would improve the accuracy and completeness of maintenance data elements that are collected for NSW maritime assets using the MU work order process.
 
Users:
This problem affects all current NSW DPAS MU users.
