Final rept. 1 Aug 1993-25 Apr 1994
ARMY TRADOC ANALYSIS COMMAND FORT LEE VA
Pagination or Media Count:
This analysis evaluated the potential costs and benefits of the prototype Materiel Release Order Control MROC in use in the model Direct Support Unit DSU initiative at Fort Bragg, NC. The MROC provides documentable time savings in the areas of 1 receipt processing, 2 customer issue, 3 shipping, and 4 status checking. The comprehensive database and report generating capabilities should contribute to the Army goal of total asset visibility and enhance cross-leveling concepts. Reductions in ordering will eventually decrease ASL with a proportional reduction in inventory shrinkage, both of which may result in substantial cost avoidance. The expected benefits should easily offset the cost of procuring the MROC. Materiel Release Order Control MROC, Direct Support Unit DSU.
