S--Army, the existing SLAMIS process must also transform to accommodate the ERP environment of GCSS--Army.
To better assist the fielding of GCSS--Army, it is important for units, and especially unit supply and property book officers, to properly catalog any nonstandard items using the existing SLAMIS process now, before the EDMO and the GCS'S--Army deployment team arrive.
Develop systems interface arrangements among SLAMIS, the AMC Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW), and the Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced (PBUSE) and Defense Property Accounting System (DPAS) property reporting systems.
The SLAMIS NSLIN module implemented on 26 July 2005 includes a baseline Army NSLIN Master Catalog and gives PBOs Web access so that they can view the NSLIN records in the Master Catalog and request new NSLINs and MCNs when Master Catalog records do not meet their needs.
The SLAMIS module assists users who are requesting NSLINs and MCNs by automatically filling in data values or by providing pick lists of valid values when possible.
On 1 October 2005, PBUSE removed the capability previously available to the PBOs to assign their own NSLINs, added a hyperlink to SLAMIS for central assignment of NSLINs, and established links with LOGSA to include the NSLIN Master Catalog in the PBUSE application at the PBO level.
Features of the SLAMIS NSLIN module are continually being improved and enhanced based on user feedback and stakeholder input.
Training opportunities have been offered throughout the development of the SLAMIS NSLIN module to PBOs; personnel in the research cells, HQDA, and AMC; program managers; and general users.
With the cooperation and support of PBOs and stakeholders throughout the Army, significant progress has been made since the initial implementation of the SLAMIS NSLIN module less than a year ago.
Institutionalize SLAMIS training in Army Training and Doctrine Command schools.
Refine a long-term interlace among SLAMIS, LIW, PBUSE, and DPAS.
