Software Contract Sustain's Ammunition Depot Automation Applications


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Savi Technology,
: 14 May, 2008  (Company News)
Savi, a Lockheed Martin company, has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Army Joint Munitions Command (JMC) for a government-developed, automated information system (AIS) that supports depot-level ammunition logistics functions. The award was made by Army Sustainment Command on behalf of the JMC.
Munitions Total Management Systems-Field Module (MTMS-FM) provides extensive business process automation functionality for employees at all Ammunition locations throughout the United States. MTMS-FM software, which Savi has provided since 1999, automates, integrates and streamlines depot operations, allowing users visibility of shipment data throughout the outloading process. The software application automates about 40,000 movement transactions per year and dramatically reduces keystrokes, dual-entry notations, manual errors and inventory reconciliation time.

'We're honored that Savi's asset management software has earned the trust of the U.S. Army through its nine-year track record of ensuring that soldiers know precisely where munitions are stored to meet the needs of war fighters in the field,' said David Stephens, chief executive officer of Savi Technology.

The software provides features that enable users to automatically manage, update and reconcile inventory records, generate receipts of incoming supplies, and keep track of internal warehouse movements and outbound shipments. Real-time data identifying munitions supplies that are equipped with 2D bar codes or active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags is uploaded by handheld computers to Savi's asset management software. Information from Savi's software also is integrated with the U.S. Army's Standard Depot System software for network-wide visibility.
