State Description
Maint Issue Open Action Update 01338 Enterprise AF: VSCOS New

Description
Material Control Officers usually work in different sections than personnel who request items from the M&U module and they need to be aware of any Maintenance Issue requests.

Recommended
Maintenance Issue Request from M&U should display in the Open Warehouse Actions and Message of the Day Dashboard.

Mission Critical
Materiel Control section is mandated per AFI 24-302 to "Initiate, monitor and follow up (as needed/required) on part requests".  Initiating this change will highlight pending parts requests.

Benefits
Displaying these requests in the open actions and message of the day dashboard will raise awareness and accelerate the purchase process.

Users
This change will have a beneficial impact on all users that purchase and issue parts along with personnel that request the parts.

Parts Request Process for Items not Currently Catalogued 01329 Enterprise AF: VSCOS New

Description
M/U does not allow for part numbers to be requested without being loaded to Logistics Program (LP) and warehouse, which poses a challenge for technicians to request parts using the M/U part tab. Technicians would need to manually send required 26 data points to the Materiel Control Officer to load part numbers to LP and warehouse to allow technician to go back to M/U part request.

Recommended
Minimize the amount of information needed from the technician to get part on demand. Need capability to request part numbers using M/U and will transfer part information to Materiel Control Officer via warehouse module to load to catalog; in order to conduct a more fluid ordering process. Also, allow tab to transfer remarks; stating recommended source of supply or vendor.

Mission Critical
It is mission critical and is mandated

Benefits
Process will expand parts catalog capability and allow future changes as new models of vehicles & vehicular equipment are introduced to the USAF vehicle fleet.

Users
This option would benefit all M/U and Warehouse users.

GSA/DLA Mass Mileage Upload 01342 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, mass mileage can be uploaded via GSA Fleet file upload and DLA Fuel upload.  GSA upload will update fuel usage as well as mileage.  DLA will update fuel but no miles;  however the odometer field is still mandatory for the system to accept the file.  The issue is both GSA and DLA mileage inputs by users at the pumps are mostly incorrect (i.e. people make up numbers or use the tenth of a mile on the odometer; 1600.9 miles becomes 16009).
Our Fleet Management and Analysis section needs to be able to collect and verify all mileage updates before loading into DPAS. 

Recommended
Separate the mileage mandate from the current GSA/DLA fuel upload capability.  Create a bulk upload template for both GSA an DLA fuel uploads.  For ease of upload, suggest utilizing current GSA bulk mileage upload spreadsheet that exists in the GSA Fleet Drive-thru website.  Create a similar type mass upload sheet for DLA mileage uploads.

Mission Critical
This is a mission critical change.  Incorrect mileage can send scheduled maintenance dates well out of range as well as affect both vehicle End of Life and Priority Buy models. Both are key to the Air Force vehicle fleet replacement placement. 

Benefits
This feature will reduce the time it takes to input hundreds of mileage updates one by one as well as increase the accuracy of the data being entered. Our fleet has 83K assets, to have our FMIS be able improve fuel reporting efficiency and accuracy is vital to day to day mission success.

Users
All Air Force Fleet Managers/Maintenance controllers and Material specialists utilize this information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Auto Save every 10 min minutes (similar to Word Docs) 01340 Enterprise AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, there is not a way for a user to back up data that has been inputted into DPAS M&U and are still trying to complete the transaction, before their 15 minute time is up. So any data inputted before clicking update is lost, and is very time consuming to re-enter. Especially, if the Work Order has numerous Sub Work Orders.

Recommended
The ability to have DPAS M&U auto save (like Word Docs) every 10 min would be a great add on to the program. This will ensure that users have time to input information or make updates without worrying that they don't have time, and make a mistake or if they get called away mid-transaction. Also, the fleet management personnel might have to stop mid way during the profiling, utilization update or work order process to retrieve additional information.

Mission Critical
This is critical, this will give adequate time for the user to input data accurately and without concern of losing information already inputted. Currently, the inability to save data is not user friendly to daily operations.

Benefits
This would benefit users (having the security of not losing data); increasing productivity and maintenance leadership getting the most accurate and up to date maintenance information of assets in maintenance in a timely manner.

Users
This SCR will affect the entire AF Agency, all fleet managers/maintenance controllers utilize up to date information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Work Plan Type Cd Correction and/or Addition 01336 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
DPAS will not allow the use of Work Plan Type Cd "INSP" more than once on a work order.  If a second sub work order is created with "INSP" an error message displays "2-Invalid entry: there is more than one INSP sub work order.  A work order can have at most one INSP sub work order"

Recommended
Allow multiple inspections to be inputted on more than one sub work order and/or create specific work plan type codes for "INCM/Incoming" and "OUTG/Outgoing" inspections.

Mission Critical
This is mission critical as many inspections such as incoming, outgoing quality control and visual inspections are mandated per AFI 24-302 and T.O. 36-1-191.

Benefits
Benefits of implementing this change will allow more accurate maintenance action classification reporting and fleet analysis.

Users
All Air Force fleet managers, maintenance controllers and material control specialists utilize this information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Combining System Generated Work orders 01335 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, when an asset is due scheduled maintenance/inspection, a system generated work order will open up for each individual maintenance/inspection due.  As it stands right now, work plan(s) can be combined to one work order and the unneeded work order voided.  However, the voided work order still self generated as "due" the next day.

Recommended
Add feature to work order that will allow other system generated work orders to be combined and prevent another instance of the same maintenance/inspection from self generating again the next day.

Mission Critical
Yes.  The current configuration allows several work orders be open for the same asset leaving the open work orders screen clogged full of unnecessary "open" work orders and makes it difficult for vehicle managers to get an informed snap shot of what is currently open within the shop.

Benefits
The benefits of implementing this change will reduce the "clutter" within the open work order screen/open actions screen and provide a clearer site picture of what assets are actually down for maintenance.

Users
All fleet managers, maintenance controllers and materiel specialists utilize this information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Permanently attach Mx records for life of asset 01333 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, when an asset is transferred from one UIC to another, all maintenance history/records is removed and does not follow the asset. 

Recommended
Ensure all historical maintenance records and attachments are electronically attached to the asset for its entire life cycle. Have MU mimic PA functions for records updates and attachment management.

Mission Critical
Very mission critical.  If the entire assets maintenance history is not available, it is difficult to identify maintenance trends and recurring issues. It also hinders researching previous Service Bulletins, Manufacturer's Warranties, One Time Inspections and Time Compliance Technical Orders that have been completed which could lead to potential safety issues. 

Benefits
Implementing this solution will ensure all historical data is available to maintenance managers for the life of the asset; in order for trends and safety issues to be easily identified. 

Users
All Air Force Fleet Managers/Maintenance controllers and Material specialists utilize this information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Nuclear, Reimbursable, Mission Critical Indicator Reflect on Basic Work Order 01330 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, there is no way to identify that an asset is nuclear certified, reimbursable or mission critical when opening a work order. Fleet analysts and mechanics need a simple way to distinguish assets that are identified as nuclear certified, reimbursable or mission critical to properly direct and perform maintenance actions. 

Recommended
Add three fields with drop down selections on the Maint Asset screen. The fields can be located on the Basic or Vehicle Characteristics tab.  The Field names and drop down selections will simply have the options Nuc Cd "N" for nuclear, Remb/Refd "4" for reimbursable/5 for refundable" and Msn Crt "C" for mission critical.  Fields will be blank or N/A for the conditions that do now apply.  The field name and codes "N", "4 or 5" and "C" will reflect on the basic work order tab when opening a work order and the technician work order when printed. See attachment which details basic requirement. Additionally, all fields (to include cost centers) need to be easily identifiable when pulling a Maint Asset inquiry or a work order/sub work order inquiry. 

Mission Critical
Critical.  It is imperative that a technician know if a vehicle is certified to handle nuclear cargo or not.  Nuclear certified assets have additional rules that governs maintenance; requiring the technician an easily identifiable indicator on the work order to stay in compliance with AFI 63-125, Nuclear Certification Program.  Furthermore, it is imperative that Vehicle Management have an easily identifiable indicator and inquiry that an asset is refundable or reimbursable in order to recoup sustainment funds from an outside organization monthly as well as the ability to easily identify mission critical assets.

Benefits
Benefits of implementing this change includes saving research time when opening a work order, potential of performing maintenance improperly on a vehicle and decertifying it's nuclear certified status.  It will also, save time trying to identify refundable/reimbursable assets as well as improve accuracy of financial reporting per AFI 24-302, para 4.20 "Ensure Reimbursable units are coded correctly and perform follow up actions for financial recoupment."

Users
All Air Force Fleet Managers/Maintenance controllers and Material specialists utilize this information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Calculate and Display Mission Capable Rate (percentage) 01328 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, there is no feature within DPAS that displays daily or monthly cumulative Mission Capable (MC) rate percent. 

Recommended
Add daily MC rate to the DPAS Maint and Utilization Home Page and create a report that will display monthly cumulative MC rate. (NMCM+NMCS hours divided by available hours - 100 = MC%).  Calculation does not take into account any assets marked "NMC: NO" or non-accountable assets.

Mission Critical
This is mission critical and mandated.  Senior leaders as well as vehicle fleet managers utilize the MC rate as a snap shot of the overall health of the vehicle fleet.  MC rate is also mandated per DoDM 4500.36.

Benefits
The benefit of implementing this solution will improve maintenance leadership's ability to have an accurate and up to the minute sight picture of the health of the vehicle fleet and mission readiness. Air Force non tactical vehicles are also included in our warfighting capabilities (base security, runway repair, aircraft supporting, etc.) as a force multiplier. 

Users
All Air Force Fleet Managers/Maintenance controllers and Material specialists utilize this information for day to day fleet management purposes.  

Lock Est Labor Hours field to a mandatory field and add error indicator 01356 MU AF: VSCOS New

Description
Currently, there is not a way to ensure Air Force M&U users input Estimated Labor Hours on Sub Work Orders. Estimated labor is a mandatory input for our user, currently the system allows users to by pass this field. This is necessary as part of our indirect costing formula and a FMIS requirement per GSA Bulletin FMR B-15, September 21, 2007, on identifying, collecting and analyzing motor vehicle data with respect to the costs-including indirect costs-incurred for the operation, maintenance. acquisition and disposition of motor vehicles.

Recommended
The ability to ensure that all users are inputting Est Labor Hours in a Sub Work Order is crucial. When creating a Sub Work Order this field needs to be a mandatory field and a message needs to pop up when there is not a number in the Est Labor Hour field on this.

Mission Critical
This is critical.  Enterprise fleet managers count on viewing this information to be able to make informed decisions to manage Air Force fleets around the globe as well as meet GSA reporting requirements.

Benefits
This would benefit Air Force leadership by getting the most accurate and up to date maintenance information and meeting GSA Bulleting FMR B-15 for all federal assets.

Users
This SCR will affect all DPAS M&U users utilizing this information for day to day fleet management purposes.

Next Inspection Dt 01352 Warehouse AF: AFERMS New

Description
Inspection allows users to put the next inspection date past component expiration dates.

Recommended
When a component is expiring before the normal auto populated next inspection date have it auto populate to the first component expiration date(including shelf and service life expirations) and grey out all dates past that, so they can't force the next inspection date.  If no components expire prior to the normal next inspection date, auto populate to the normal next inspection date. Also, give a note telling the user which component expires prior to the full next inspection date. (see powerpoint)

QA-QC Reports 01350 Warehouse AF: AFERMS New

Description
All QA/QC Reports pull four to six different reports when 'All" is selected for sort by.  They are not exported in a way that allows the user to easily sort further. They also should be showing sort by data in the search parameters on the view reports screen. QA/QC Totals reports are reflecting discrepancies as QCs, when they should be reflecting just the number of QC inspections for that number. This report needs to have a sort by option for the stock number.

Recommended
(See powerpoint for examples) Suggest removing the 'All' option for sort by to eliminate pull mult reports.  Make all reports use separate columns for all data, so users can sort further without accidentally losing data. Show sort by data in the search parameters drop down on the view reports screen.  Have QA/QC Totals report pull how many QC inspections were done, do not base off of discrepancy count. Add Stock Number sort option for the QA/QC Totals report.

SNAP-IT Association 01348 PA OSD New

Description
Identifying the SNAP-IT within the Manufacturer AUD does not allow for multiple manufacture assignment to one stock number.  If SNAP-IT is assigned, no other manufacturer can be assigned forcing the creating of a new stock number for possibly the same piece of software.

Recommended
Move the SNAP-IT association to the asset level.  Possible location for SNAP-IT association may be Asset Receiving > Catalog or Asset Receiving > Asset Entry.

Mission Critical
The mandate is to associate the SNAP- IT to the asset accountable record.

Benefits
Allows multiple Manufacturers to be added to one NSN/MCN which reduces time and the number of NSN/MCNs to a catalog.

Users
Only users with access to Manufacturer AUD

Software Name Creation 01347 PA OSD New

Description
For GOTS and Modified COTS SW Mgmt Types, the SW name is usually unconventional or internally named.  Users would constantly seek to update the SW Name table and this would be commingled with COTS.

Recommended
Move the Software Name function to Asset Receiving > Asset Entry tab so the SW Name is on the asset record.  Also, if SW Mgmt Type is GOTS or Modified COTS, allow SW Name to be Free Text to keep from updating table constantly.

Mission Critical
Critical to user for inventory identification.

Serialized SKO 01346 Warehouse Army: USASOC New

Description
When managed and unmanaged kit items are assembled in Warehouse module, there is no indication of the kit's value besides the FLIS value assigned.  The final products' unit price may exceed the capitalization threshold, causing the OM&S to become financially reportable as general equipment.  Unclear how the end-items' unit price will be derived and reported (via Materiel Management module).  Need DW Form 08 (or similar report) to show assembly date and price of the complete kit to be used as a key supporting document during audit.

Recommended
Update the serialized (managed) SKO component lists to show all components on SKO catalog with the quantity the kit should contain (authorized) as well as actual on hand quantity. Allow for adjustment of SKO Header Record NSN price of the Kit, based on the Condition Code of the Kit. Solution must include unit value for managed and unmanaged kits.
Update the DW Form 08 SKO managed kit to have the assembly date and price of the complete kit.

Mission Critical
Mandated per FIAR guidance and DoD policy.

Benefits
Benefits all DPAS users who must pass audits that build SKOs that ultimately create an end-items. 
Ensure moving average cost of the kitted end-item is reportable via Material Management module. Ensure general equipment, with no SKOs, maintained with the Warehouse module can apply the standard price methodology (vs moving cost avg).
NOTE: SOCOM has flexibility to determine if average cost or standard cost of OM&S is accepted IAW existing policy.
