In line with the agency's transformation goals, the BSM caters to improve on supply chain management across 4 areas: the customer relationship management, for customer related information, the supplier relationship management, for vendor purchase request/invoice information, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, for payment information and the Defense Automatic Addressing System, for contracts, solicitation and inventory information. The MJM3 information systems will address particularly these four areas of management in the DLA agency instead of the entirety of the agency itself.
The MJM3 information system introduces the following software package. The TopShelf2.0 handles information on business inventory, handheld scanning technology and wireless network transfers. The TopRFID is used to count inventory, write and tag information or plan a store layout to specific item-level detail. The InStore software deals with order placement, shipment tracking and inventory monitoring. EnRoute software help input and access information on route accounting, package tracking and ordering, plus additional ERMA software helpful in times of item breakdowns. This is used for order repairs, replacements or software reconfigurations.
Other important feature of the services available with MJM3 systems is the one website center that interlinks all departments of the agencies for easy information transfers in any transactions involved. It also introduces a security system that ensures that no unwanted infiltration on the system will occur. Added to this is the future improvements package which ensures the customer that changes or upgrades in the system in line with R&D outputs will be recommended and applied. Then, upon approval or purchase, MJM3 technicians commence planning on set-up, testing and installation.
These, together with top hardware items to complement the need, gives the agency less paper work, faster delivery times, greater access to information with lesser flaws to inter-department coordination and cooperation, This paperless, push-of-a-button technology will be a great investment for the DLA's modernization program.
