2017 DoD Award for Supply Chain Excellence

Winner: Naval Supply Systems Command, NAVSUP Weapons Systems Support Logistics Cell (LOGCELL)

The NAVSUP WSS LOGCELL team has demonstrated leadership in collaboration, innovation, and digital integration. LOGCELL’s newly established sustainment metrics and detailed End to End approach has seen immediate success in the readiness of critical aviation platforms such as the FA-18, V-22, H-1, and P-8. In 2017, the team worked tirelessly with programmers to develop the solution for a web-based tool designed to join with industry partners and collectively expedite material to the Fleet through visualization and increased speed of learning. Partnering with NAVAIR, the LOGCELL team created a new breadth of cross-functional teaming. Accomplishments include: 21% backorder reduction for H-1 critical items; 11% decrease in FA-18 critical item backorders; FA-18 new predictive spares requirements generation increase of 26% ($13M); 66% reduction in FA-18 supply over-dues; 61% (16 day) reduction in P-8 Customer Wait Time (CWT) for repairables; and, new V-22 predictive spares requirements generation increase of 44% ($33M), from $74 Million to $107 Million. Real-time content sharing from multiple sources makes complex sets of data accessible to all team members. LOGCELL has been able to knock down data silos, increase communication, and align the many internal and external Naval Aviation Enterprise stakeholders. LOGCELL enabled strong outcomes in planning, predictive analytics, and supplier education and performance.
