As stated in Air Force Manual (AFMAN) 23-110, USAF Supply Manual, Volume 1, Part 1, Chapter 24, "The Uniform Materiel Movement and Issue Priority System (UMMIPS):" UMMIPS provides a ready basis for expressing the relative importance of requisitions and materiel movement transactions using a series of two-digit codes (01-15), referred to as priority designators (PDs) and the designation, or nondesignation, of a required delivery date (RDD)." (15) Additionally, the priority designator is based on a combination of the F/AD and the UND.
The first part of the designation in UMMIPS is the F/AD.

This is a marked increase from the 7,400 units of equipment the Air Force would have purchased with UMMIPS. The SORTS-driven prioritization approach would have also resulted in 2,943 S-1 rated organizations, whereas only 1,339 organizations would have been S-1 rated had the UMMIPS method been employed.
Likewise, there would have been no S-4 rated organizations, compared to 770 [BP12] and 1,471 [BP-84] with UMMIPS, for other base maintenance (BP-84) and support equipment (BP-12).
The DTS cargo priority system is governed by the Uniform Materiel Movement and Issue Priority System (UMMIPS).
The UMMIPS attempts to provide an upper bound for delivery time by designating time standards for order-to-receipt time, but there is no guarantee these times will be met.
