News Release -- November 03, 2010
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Nov. 3 – CSC (NYSE:CSC) announced today the go-live of the third deployment of the U.S. Army’s Logistics Modernization Program (LMP) for the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC). Now fully deployed to more than 21,000 users at more than 50 locations around the world, the LMP delivers improved total situational awareness of Army assets.
The LMP is one of the world’s largest, fully integrated supply chain, maintenance, repair and overhaul planning and execution solutions. As one of the largest and most complex enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations in the world, LMP provides the infrastructure to sustain the Army’s national-level logistics systems. It manages $25.5 billion in inventory, including spare and repair parts to sustain communications and electronics equipment and systems, helicopters, missiles, tanks, armaments and munitions. In addition, through the LMP, transactions are conducted with 50,000 vendors and more than 70 Department of Defense systems are integrated to deliver needed supplies from the factory to the foxhole.
“CSC and its partners are proud of this achievement. With the successful deployment of the LMP, tens of thousands of users have improved visibility, enhanced data accuracy and integrity, sophisticated reporting, and integrated financial management capabilities,” said Austin Yerks, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group. “Today, soldiers have real-time visibility into the supply chain of needed materials and equipment for the troops who depend on them.”
As prime contractor, CSC is the systems integrator, applications service provider and full partner with AMC in the transformation of business processes and the governance of the LMP solution. Since 1999, CSC has led a team in modernizing the Army's logistics infrastructure to achieve a logistics system focused on systems interoperability.
The LMP offers item managers improved asset visibility, enhanced data accuracy and integrity, reporting and integrated financial management capabilities. These advances, in turn, benefit the Warfighter. The LMP allows full visibility of an order and its associated dependencies. In real time, a user can check inventory balances and use LMP to verify geographical location and mission project code of a unit's request. With a few mouse clicks, materials and equipment are on their way to the Warfighters who depend so greatly on them.
