The Naval Supply Systems Command has begun using a logistics management system designed to handle enterprise-wide business procedures in line with Department of Defense standards. The U.S. Navy said Tuesday that the Navy Logistics Management Standards information technology system standardizes and transmits data sets across NAVSUP’s applications and enables users to access related components to support decision-making activities. NLMS also tracks data to help simplify auditing operations.
“It works as part of the NAVSUP Enterprise IT infrastructure to supply the fleet with data for applications such as One Touch Support, Electronic Retrograde Management System, and Commercial Asset Visibility,” said Andrew Festa, project manager for the NLMS effort at NAVSUP’s Business Systems Center.
NLMS is designed to comply with the Defense Logistics Management Standards, which covers regulations and practices for supply, transportation, acquisition, maintenance and financial activities.
