Abstract : The overall objective of the Department of Defense Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) Program is to integrate the design, manufacturing, and logistic functions through the efficient application of computer technology. CALS is a program to apply existing and emerging communications and computer-aided technologies in DoD and industry to: (1) Integrate and improve design, manufacturing, and logistic functions; thereby bridging existing islands of automation; (2) Actively influence the design process to produce weapon systems that are more reliable and easier to support and maintain; and (3) Shift from current paper-intensive weapon support processes to a highly automated mode of operation, based on a unified DoD interface with industry for exchange of logistic technical information in digital form.
