Abstract:

Global Combat Support System Marine Corps GCSS-MC was created to combine both Logistics and Supply capabilities into one system. The existing systems of Asset Tracking Logistics and Supply System Atlass and PC Marine Corps Integrated Maintenance Management System MIMMS required external interfaces to merge data. This new system was established to streamline the way the Marine Corps allowed commanders to make logistic and supply decisions. Unfortunately, GCSS-MC was not implemented with any Logistics or Supply Analytics, which required users to manipulate Microsoft Office products such as Access and Excel to analyze data. The objective of this thesis was to design, develop, and test a proof-of-concept prototype utilizing Oracle WebCenter to create dashboard analytics that allow commanders at all levels to make informed near-real time decisions. This was achieved by using the following a modern design approach the Model-View-Controller a state-of-the-art development pattern Oracle Application Development Framework and powerful development tools such as Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle WebCenter Portal Builder.
