Turning Data into Actionable Information


THE STORY

LogDAT eliminates the time previously spent collecting and analyzing data so logistics managers can focus on mission-critical work

The armed forces are often challenged to manage equipment and resources using incompatible data systems. SRA’s LogDAT system eliminates the time previously spent collecting and analyzing data so logistics managers can focus on mission-critical work. This supply chain automation tool offers modeling and analysis tools along with asset visibility, tracking and identification across the enterprise.

With LogDAT, information is aggregated and presented in a variety of ways that can be tailored to the viewer’s needs. Managers can make quick, well-informed decisions based on actionable data which creates a tactical and strategic advantage.


RESULTS

Seamlessly orchestrating military equipment to be available when and where it’s needed can contribute to the success of a mission. With LogDat, managers have visibility into maintenance work orders at the parts, personnel and man hour level. They can also forecast workloads, personnel skills requirements and equipment status. In a real-world example, a maintenance manager could quickly search for a part, find a location that has it and calculate the distance to get there and retrieve it. Since downtime is lost time that can impact the mission, quickly returning equipment to operational status provides an important advantage.
