Abstract : DLA (Defense Logistics Agency) and DSCP C&T (Defense Supply Center Philadelphia Clothing and Textiles) sponsored ARN's and CDUM's primary goals, which are to reduce total supply chain costs and inventory levels while minimizing retail shortages. The foundation for the achievement of these goals is the existence of web accessible databases that provide total supply chain asset visibility to all functions that manufacture products, make decisions, distribute products, and consume apparel items. The ARN components of the total system are those that are in production and funded by DSCP C&T. The CDUM components of the total system are those that are part of DLA's R&D efforts to expand system capabilities beyond ARN to address nonrecruit clothing, particularly hard to procure and mission critical items. The ARN and CDUM networks are completely isolated from each other (see Figure 1). The ARN network is only being used for DSCP C&T funded production support for DSCP C&T personnel, its vendors, eight of the recruit training centers, and KYLOC. The CDUM pilots needed a separate network and a subset of ARN?s database to support both PDIT?s and AdvanTech's CDUM pilots. The CDUM network was established by one of PDIT?s tasks to provide a completely redundant set of web and database servers, domain controllers, firewalls, and the rest of the equipment and software required to support CDUM's development and testing needs. The network is now in place and supporting all CDUM R&D efforts.
