Maritime Logistics Community News : Summer 2010
23 NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2010 IITV will be integrated with ADFDLS and will provide an improved capability to track and manage inventory and assets whilst in-transit from the supplier to the customer. It will allow the user to observe and monitor the stores moving through each node of the supply chain. Through integration with ADFDLS, the IITV capability will be extended into all Areas of Operations (AO). A contract was signed with Mincom on 29 Dec 09 to commence work on Stage 1. Detailed Requirements Analysis Workshops commenced in early 2010 utilising both Mincom Technical Staff and Defence Subject Matter Experts (SME's) for the development of the Product Requirements Specification (PRS). Mincom has committed to deliver the full Phase 2B.2 capability through an integrated Commerical Off The Shelf (COTS) solution built on the JP2077 Phase 2B.1 solution. The final solution is due for delivery in 2013, with implementation completed by 2014. Phase 2B.2 staffing has ramped up with a combination of current Phase 2B.2 staff members (both military and civilian), Contractors and former Phase 2B.1 staff members being released to Phase 2B.2. It is anticipated that Phase 2B.2 will be fully manned by the end of 2010. Key Project deliverables currently under development/review by the Project and its Stakeholders include the draft Training Strategy (presented at the initial Training Reference Group held in Jul 10) and the draft Integrated Logistics Support Concept. The latter has been distributed to various stakeholders with feedback currently under review by Project staff. There have also been three System Architectural Design (SAD) sub products passed to the Project by Mincom that are reviewed by Technical Staff as required. The final Product Requirements Specification (PRS) was received by the Project and is under review by Project staff, the Services and Groups. A Business Transformation Team comprised of both Commonwealth staff and KPMG commenced in Aug 10 and are currently reviewing the Organisational Change Management (OCM) needs for Phase 2B.2 and planning OCM activities required for the remainder of the Project. Subject to the commencement of the Solution Design Stage and Stage Two approval process the overall introduction into service dates will be determined and progressed by the Project through the various Stakeholders. The importance of JP2077 Phase 2B.2 to Navy is significant. It will represent a major change in how Ships Staff operate logistically in the seagoing environment and in the longer term will improve how RAN Supply Departments conduct their business at sea. The Project is currently in discussions with Navy Strategic Command, Fleet Headquarters and Maritime Systems Division about the overall planning and RAN internal requirements to ensure the rollout to Fleet Units occurs smoothly and takes into account individual units Operational Tempo's. This rollout is anticipated to take approximately 18 months dependant upon the ships programs within future Fleet Activity Schedules.
