UIF Return Exchange 00952 Warehouse USMC: CSP Removed

Description
Currently, there is no ability to do an exchange for Unit Issues. This function is available for Individual Issues and needs to be available for unit issues in order to exchange wrong gear or sizes without doing a complete return. 

Recommended
Recommending to add an exchange feature in Unit return that is similar to the Individual issue function.  

Mission Critical
This will enable UIF's to do exchanges without having to complete full returns. 

Benefits
This will significantly reduce the time it takes to do an exchange.

Back Order Notification 00949 Warehouse USMC: CSP Removed

Description
Currently, when a Warehouse Transfer is completed from an issue facility (ex. NCR IIF) to a different warehouse (ex. NCR DC) for an item that is not on hand at that warehouse there is no back order notice being created for the requesting warehouse. This means the requesting warehouse has no notification that there request will not be filled.

Recommended
Recommending to add function that notifies the requesting warehouse that the item that they are requesting from a different warehouse wont be filled until that warehouse has the items to fulfill the request. 

Mission Critical
This will help notify the requesting warehouse that they will not receive items because the warehouse they are requesting from has no items on hand.

Benefits
This will increase warehouse visibility of incoming warehouse transfers.

Serial Number Suspense File 00946 Warehouse USMC: CSP Removed

Description: 
Currently, when a user returns a serialized item other than their own (i.e. what was issued to them), their original serial number on the members record disappears and has no way of being tracked.

Recommended: 
Recommend adding a Serialized Suspense File to keep track of serial numbers that have not been returned. When a member returns a serial number other than their own issued serial number the system should automatically move that serial number into a serialized suspense file. This file should be placed in the "Inquiries" tab and should have all the same search-able parameters that "stock  number inventory" has.

Mission Critical: 
Yes.  This will help keep track of all serialized items, regardless of who turned in.

Benefits:
This will increase visibility of all serialized assets.

Users:
All IIF & UIF functions.

Quality Inspection Report Form 00943 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed

Description:
In DPAS version 3.2, when maintenance is completed on an asset, a Quality Control (QC) Inspection Form is created and sent to QC.  The current QC Inspection Form does not have a dedicated space to enter what maintenance was conducted on the asset.  This creates a work stoppage for QC personnel since they must then use an off-line process to find out what maintenance was conducted along with what should have been inspected. The first page has excess space and the second page has a relatively small amount of data.  A necessary revision of this form should expand current data fields while incorporating additional areas necessary to fully execute the form.  This will enable all information, including an additional field for listing the maintenance conducted, to be captured and printed on a single piece of paper.

Recommended:
It is recommended that Leidos add an additional field titled 'Required Maintenance' on the QC Inspection Form for the maintenance team to describe the maintenance conducted.  It is also recommended that Leidos reformat the current form in order to align all fields to fit on a single page.  A Microsoft Word document is attached that shows the current layout and the envisioned format that should optimize the functionality of this form.

Mission Critical:
This is mission critical since the lack of information impedes work flow in QC.

Benefits:
Revising this form will streamline the processes necessary for QC to complete an inspection report.  This change will also be beneficial by reducing the time to complete this task which consequently reduces direct labor cost and additionally decreases use of office supplies. 

Users:
This affects all QC inspectors.

Project Code BOM Print 00920 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed

In Project Management, after entering Project Code (Screen Shot 1) and selecting Search, View Plan populates on the Grid Line (Screen Shot 2 ); then View Project Plan populates with Plan Selection Criteria and Bill of Materials (BOM) (Screen Shot 3). However, there is no capability to print or save the View Project Plan page. 

 
Recommended solution: User should have the option to print and/or save the View Project Plan page with BOM listed.

Reversal capability in DPAS for inventory loss and gains 00919 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed
Problem:  The users need the ability to submit a reversal transactions on any 947I (D8 or D9) transactions which are erroneously submitted into the DPAS system.  DOD policy directs all systems to possess the capability to reverse out transactions erroneously submitted in order to correctly align inventory to the authorized transactions submissions.  Transactions (D9*/D8*) are being submitted incorrectly into the DPAS production system which should have been receipt due to high training curve.  Stock Control System (SCS) is designed to accept 947I (D8 or D9) transactions reversal intended to correct erroneous entries.
 
Recommended solution: Provide the capability to reverse out transactions erroneously submitted in order to correctly align inventory to the authorized transactions submissions.

Implement Project Codes into ICP 00908 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed
There is no project type that supports the DMC Inventory Control Point (ICP) project. ICP projects assign Project Codes to specific pieces of inventory which are sent by and received for the ICP. Each project has a List of Requirements (LOR) which defines the Stock Nbrs or Part Nbrs which are acceptable to be received against the specified Project Code. All the items listed on a specific LOR are correlated in that they are all components of the same primary end item (PEI). 
 
Recommended solution: Create an ICP project type which will allow for the upload of the LOR, the assignment of a Project Code, as well as a way to record the PEI for which the items on the LOR are components for. Allow for the ability to record a POC for the project. Modify the receiving process to allow for the selection of an open ICP project and to also validate the Stock Nbr (or Part Number) as being valid against the LOR. Receiving should prevent the receipt of a Stock Nbr which is not listed on the LOR.

Return Condition Codes 00906 Warehouse USMC: CSP Removed

When doing a return for an UnManaged Bulk Kit, if an item of the kit is reported missing and or unserviceable the Condition Code should update in the Return to "G" thus, making this kit incomplete.   

 
Recommended solution: Recommend that when doing a Return for an UnManaged bulk kit that the Condition code defaults to "G" when a piece of the kit is missing and or unserviceable.  This functionality was in production prior to 3.0.

Items Per Page 00905 Warehouse USMC: CSP Removed
Currently we are only able to view 50 Items per page when most Issue and Returns are over 70 items per page creating the user to have to click between two screens. This causes issues of missing an item that was not marked during the Return or Issue and having to go back through both screens to find the problem.  
 
Recommended solution: Recommend the Items per page be increased to 100 (Set PageMax = 100). This will help keep the error's down due to the fact the user would only have to view one screen thus saving time during an Issue and Return.

Suspense File/Queue & Server-side Error Processing for mobile transactions 00852 Warehouse USMC: CSP Removed
A common problem on the DPAS Hand Held is that transactions processed receive an error (for various reasons).  When an error is received on the hand held, there is no capability to work the discrepancy.  There is also no capability on the hand held to clear the discrepancy, without going into the SD card on the device and deleting the .SDF file. 
 
Recommended solution: It is recommended that the DPAS Scanner pass all transactions to the DPAS On-Line application and push error transactions to an inbound error que that can be worked by system clerks.  The Scanner itself should push all work, regardless of error to this file for resolution.  Error files should not be stuck on the scanner with no capability to remove them without deleting the SDF file. The end state is that all work that is completed on a scanner be pushed to the warehouse for disposition, so that the warehouseman can continue work uninterrupted by errors.

Generate a movement request when work order is updated with a state of ATWR 00844 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed
A Maintenance Movement Request should be system generated when a Work Order is updated with a Work Order State Cd of “AWTR- Approved-Awtng Transportation” and a new “Maint Loc” 
 
 Current process requires 9 steps per move request to ensure AWTR has been generated. These 9 steps takes an average of 5 minutes per move request, currently DMC averages 50 move requests per day. An system-generated Maintenance Movement Request would save approximately 250 minutes per day. There also should be an Open Action Folder and Completed Transportation Folder generated in the main menu to be able to track the process of the AWTR. There should be an Open Action Folder created for Work Orders with the WO State Cd of “AWTR- Approved-Awtng Transportation” and a second Open Action Folder for these Work Orders once the asset has been moved to the requested Maint Loc. These folders would give the Maintenance Officers and assigned Primary Techs visibility of the current state of particular WOs and when service can be started on asset.
 
Recommended solution: Maintenance Movement Request should be system-generated. A Maintenance Movement Request should be system generated when a Work Order is updated with a Work Order State Cd of “AWTR- Approved-Awtng Transportation” and a new “Maint Loc”.

Required Delivery Date not reflected on M&U Work Order 00816 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed
The Required Delivery Date (RDD) from a MRO is not reflected on the M&U Work Order.  This is very important information when dealing with a shipment (MRO).
 
Recommended solution: The Required Delivery Date (RDD) that a MRO is assigned in the WM Module has to carry over to the M&U Work Order.  As it is currently, the RDD shown in M&U is based off of the priority code assigned by the system and can be changed by any M&U User.  MROs are the top priority in Maintenance and their urgency is driven by the RDD on the MRO.

The Required Delivery Date (RDD) assigned in the WM Module has to be reflected on the M&U Work Order.

 

Currently DMC needs a way to manage priority of WO opened from the Warehouse MRO process.  SCR is to have the RDD populate into the WO process and appear on the physical PDF of Work Order.  The need to prioritize WO coming from the Warehouse MRO process is a need across DOD.  In addition to RDD a better system method to manage this business process would be to have the MRO priority FAD relate directly to a WO Priority (Fred Maley).  Spoke with Rick M. 1 Dec 2016 of need of SCR.  Will work with development to have effort assigned.

Quality Control Inspection - Search Criteria Request 00799 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed
In Materiel Management, Quality Control, customer needs the capability to track Quality Control actions with the same QC Request Number before and after it returns from M&U.
 
Recommended solution: Recommend linking the same QC Request Number to the M&U Work Order Number throughout the process so that all transactions concerning the asset can be associated. The QC Number should be the same with a different QC type.

Quality Control Inspection - Move Serial number to Main Grid Line 00795 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed

In Materiel Management, Quality Control, customer request the serial number be placed on the Main Grid line.

 
Recommended solution:
 
Recommend moving the Serial number from the secondary grid Line to the Main Grid so that it can be used as searchable field.
 
NOTE: THIS IS DUE TO THE SERIAL NBR BEING ASSOCIATED TO THE SUB GRID DETAILS - NOT THE HEADER.  MULTIPLE SERIAL NBRS COULD BE ASSOCIATED TO THE HEADER.  However it could perhaps be made a Search Box Field....per TFS 12588 OR could do this like Associated Stock Nbrs in the Phys Inv process ???

M&U - apprvl, service end/start dates not mandatory 00706 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed

Once a tech has been assigned to a Work Order, a Service Start Date has to be entered. Without automation, the M&U supervisor must print W/O to give to assigned tech. At the time of printing W/O, the tech has not started the service yet making this date inaccurate.

 
Approval Date (Date that supervisor initializes the W/O process), Service Start Date (Date that tech actually starts service) and Service End Date (Date that tech actually completes service) are three important date fields but do not need to be prepopulated or linked to priority code or anything else. They should be standalone date fields. Because there is no AUTOMATION in the M&U Module, a hard copy of each W/O must be printed and given to the assigned tech. The tech will have to write in his start and end dates on the printed copy. The supervisor will then have to reopen W/O and enter this information. This is the only way to capture somewhat accurate times for accountability and time management purposes without automation.

Provide the ability to set and assign QC request 00699 Warehouse USMC: DMC Removed
Within Materiel Management Receiving, there is no option to send to M&U within the acceptance screen of receipts.
 
Should have a check box to send to M&U and selection drop down to identify required action. Also need an option to add remarks. This would prevent unnecessarily sending a document to QC only to have it assigned and sent back to the same inspector for inspection.
 
Possibly:  Add to any process that generates QC requests …

Manual Close Intransits by Document Nbr 01697 Registry (SA/LW) Leidos New

Description
The registry manages SA/LW by Stock Nbr / Serial Nbr.  A single shipment may include many items. The requirement to close each intransit singularly is time consuming.  USSOCOM, a user of the DPAS SA/LW registry, is requesting the capability close outstanding shipments by entering a Document Nbr.   This is required as there are many intransit shipments that are not being auto-closed.

Recommended
The system should allow the user to enter the Document Nbr for the shipment, review the outstanding items (they would all be checked as the default), permitting the user to un-check any item that has not been confirmed as received, then select update with the system closing all items associated with the Document Nbr.  This change would improve the process and reduce the amount of time required to close intransits.

Mission Critical
The current process is very time consuming and takes resources that could be performing other mission duties.

Benefits
This change will reduce the time to manually close an intransit that was not auto-closed.

Users
All users of the SA/LW registry will benefit from this change.
