Title: Project plan to enhance the accessibility and availability of the LIF for the LCA (PAAL)

Abstract

The US Army Logistics Control Activity (LCA) maintains a data base containing information on the worldwide supply and distribution flows of Army materials. This data base exists to provide information both for management of the logistics system and to help the users track their requisitioned material as it moves through the pipeline. The data base has grown very large, currently encompassing more than 30 million records in more than 30 different individual data sets. These records are kept on magnetic disk storage units for access and processing. The primary record is a representation of the individual requisition for material, augmented by shipping information as first the requisition and then the material proceeds through the actual logistics system. Collectively, this information is known as the Logistics Intelligence File (LIF). In this document, we present our perception of the demand for information products from the LIF and the developmental activities needed to meet those demands. We also provide preliminary schedules for tasks and activities associated with this plan. For those tasks which have already been initiated, we give a summary of our progress to date. Finally, we present our estimates of the cost and resources required to implement this plan, together withmore » an estimate of the special assistance needed from LCA.« less
