Abstract:

Since 1990, the Government Accountability Office GAO audits have assessed supply chain management as a high-risk area within the Department of Defense DoD. In response to these findings, the Defense Logistics Agency DLA developed the National Inventory Management Strategy NIMS initiative. This initiative combines the consumable repair inventories of DLA wholesale level and each armed service retail level into a single national inventory. The United States Navy and DLA established test sites at Naval Air Station Ingleside, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar to demonstrate to benefits and measure its performance. The aim of this report is to analyze NIMS preliminary performance metrics in terms of effectiveness and its impact on supply chain management within the Navy an DLA.
