Abstract:

The ARN AOPM Application System was developed to retrieve and process special measurement and stock orders for military clothing. AOPM was initially developed to replace the SF 358 and SF 1111, the special measurement forms used for male and female personnel. After completion of AOPM, ARN Partner Clemson Apparel Research CAR, initiated the Electronic Order Form EOF Project. The purpose of the EOF Project was to place the special measurement ordering process on the DSCP Web site. The EOF program replaced the special measurement functionality in AOPM. Military locations requiring special measurement clothing now access EOF to submit their special measurement orders to DSCP. DSCP uses this special measurement order to initiate a formal EDI order to a specific Defense Apparel Manufacturer DAM . The formal order, an EDI ANSI X12 4010 850 Purchase Order, is transmitted to the DAM. The DAM retrieves the EOF special measurements via FTP and the 850 Purchase Order via the Value Added Network VAN. The DAM then launches an AOPM Requisition Number match routine. If there is a match between any Purchase Order and EOF special measurement data retrieved, the information is then married together for the DAM to use in initiating the manufacturing process.
