A Prime Integrator

ASD as a prime integrator, managed, designed, built and tested, under the auspice of the AF – CIO, the AF Director of Transformation, key stakeholders from AFMC HQ, and the ALC’s, various AF logistics and SCM modernization initiatives, encompassing ERP,PDM, PLM and SCM implementations, integrating AF supply, contracting, budgeting systems with key AF suppliers such as Lockheed Martin and GE, including the introduction of the first SOA based architecture within the AF logistics domain, to demonstrate interoperability between AF legacy systems and COTS. Currently, ASD’s support to the AF within the Log and SCM domains, encompass initiatives to assess, and clean various legacy system data, to ensure functionally accurate data for the AF’s modernized systems.

ASD has also assisted AFMC/A4SP with analysis and deployment, developed initiative integration requirements, and conducted supply chain management analysis under PSCM Program, history supporting Logistics, and Supply Chain Modernization Pathfinder efforts. These efforts provided a major step forward in integrating purchasing and supply chain services across the logistics and contracting functional domains. Finally, ASD’s successful experiences with the DoD, Air Force, and the GCSS frameworks, and other government and commercial frameworks, has provided us a thorough set of tools, methodologies, lessons learned, best practices and techniques to apply towards IT modernization.

Comprehensive Management Processes That Optimize Program Resources

We support program offices with comprehensive management processes that optimize program resources. This includes translating requirements into configured systems, integrating technical inputs, characterizing and managing risk, transitioning technology and verifying that designs meet end-users’ operational needs.

Supply Chain Integration Center

ASD developed a messaging-based, three-tier architecture pilot for the Air Force’s Supply Chain Integration Center. This was comprised of a portal layer, messaging middleware layer, and an application layer of COTS Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), and data access software. The pilot demonstrated how this integrated framework allowed for improved responsiveness in filling high-priority requisitions, reduction of unnecessary inventory procurements, increased opportunity for lateral redistribution of assets, and improved collaboration between stakeholders.

Supply Chain Portal-Air Force (SCP-AF)

ASD demonstrated interoperability between commercial and government information technology. COTS applications (Oracle 11i, Manugistics) were rapidly configured to support Air Force processes, business rules, functionality, and MILSTRIP/MILSTRAP transactions. Further, ASD confirmed how functionality from multiple systems could be consolidated into fewer applications with a shared data environment to reduce batch processing and latency for improved transaction execution, less system maintenance and better data integrity. Finally, ASD’s SCP-AF solution demonstrated how complex business logic can be modularized in the underlying systems while business rules, exceptions, and constraints can be externalized to an integration broker where change management is more readily accomplished.

Electronic Single Supply e-Procurement (ESSeP)

ASD developed an integrated, workflow automation solution using an Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) framework. ASD accelerated the Air Force procurement process, and enabled electronic commerce between Air Force and vendor information systems.

ASD provided the Program Management Office of the Marine Corps Global Combat Support System (GCSS-MC) with expert consulting support. ASD’s role was to provide specific assistance for the selection of a COTS business applications software solution in the logistics/combat service support domain, and the selection of a systems integrator to implement the selected COTS applications. As a key part of this support, we provided phased program management support for the PM’s acquisition processes.

For the USAF Data Management Organization – Data Execution Team effort, ASD was tasked to provide the structure, oversight and guidance for data preparation and migration activities associated with the modernization of AF legacy systems within the supply chain, logistics and procurement domains. This includes the ongoing development and refinement of the Data Management Organization (DMO).

Oracle eBusiness Architecture Integration

The WRALC-LMC (Warner Robins Air Logistics Center – Lockheed Martin Aero) Oracle eBusiness Architecture Integration effort involved establishing connectivity between ASD’s SCP-AF (Supply Chain Portal-Air Force) software architecture and the Lockheed Martin eBusiness Architecture for the purpose of exchanging information and processing transactions. Connecting this architecture to the Lockheed Martin eBusiness Architecture demonstrated the strategic benefits of connecting customers and suppliers in a real-time, web enabled environment.

With ASD’s experienced PeopleSoft and military retiree and annuitant payroll subject matter experts and knowledge of enterprise resource planning, we developed and implemented DRAS 2 with enhanced capabilities designed to streamline processes and provide auditable, sustainable, and flexible retiree and annuitant pay capability to better meet user needs.
