Adding to this difficulty is the fact that a portion of the force still uses SAMS and PBUSE
because the Army is still in the process of developing and fielding GCSS--Army.
Changes in PBUSE
, of course, require commanders to re-inventory property to accurately reflect shortages.
* Check that serial numbers on all serial-numbered items in SAMS-E match the serial numbers in PBUSE
. Note that GCSS-Army will use only the last 18 characters of serial numbers from PBUSE
* Conducting a STAMIS communication gunnery by setting up the satellite dishes and computers and ensuring all systems (including VSAT, CAISI, SAMS, SARSS, and PBUSE
) can communicate with one another.
Within each Wave 2 fielding event, two blackout periods occur: one for PBUSE
and one for SAMS-E.
system provides property accountability for all U.S.
While the task of bringing all this property to record in PBUSE
or DPASE seems to be straightforward, there are two choke points:
Table 1: STAMIS functional area and MOS mapping System Functional Area MOS AIT Unit Inventory Management 92Y BCS3 Logistics Tracking/Reporting 92A, Any CAISI Wireless LAN extension 25B MC4 Medical Records Management/Class VIII 68G, 25B MROCS Warehouse Inventory Management 25B, 92A MTS Logistics/Movement Tracking 92A, Any PBUSE

Another training initiative that has recently been fielded is the new Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced (PBUSE
) training aids.
In the Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced (PBUSE
), unit-level users can create entire component listings without appropriately validating BOM structures.
The Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced (PBUSE
) is the Army's web-based Combat Service Support property accountability system.
Once a component list is complete, it needs to be updated into PBUSE
. This has the added benefit of a couple things.
