FALLS CHURCH, Va., 5 Nov. 2010. CSC announced the third deployment of the U.S. Army’s Logistics Modernization Program (LMP) for the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC) has gone live. The LMP, now deployed to more than 21,000 users at more than 50 worldwide locations, is designed to deliver improved Army asset situational awareness. As prime contractor, CSC is the systems integrator, applications service provider, and partner with AMC in the transformation of business processes and the governance of the LMP solution, says a company representative.

CSC has led a team modernizing the Army's logistics infrastructure to achieve a logistics system focused on systems interoperability since 1999.

The LMP is one of the world’s largest, integrated supply chain, maintenance, repair, and overhaul planning and execution systems. “As one of the largest and most complex enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations in the world, LMP provides the infrastructure to sustain the Army’s national-level logistics systems,” says a spokesperson. It manages $25.5 billion in inventory, including spare and repair parts to sustain communications and electronics equipment and systems, helicopters, missiles, tanks, armaments and munitions. Through the LMP, transactions are conducted with 50,000 vendors and more than 70 Department of Defense systems are integrated to deliver needed supplies to the battlefield.
