Logistics Management . . .GCSS-Army: Data Cleanup Is Job #1Posted: 2014/02/06
Is your supply support activity (SSA) already using Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-Army)? If so, a lot more data has to be processed in near-real time to get you the property, parts and supplies you need to keep your organization mission-ready.
That data also needs to be clean. So whether your SSA is about to transition to GCSS-Army or if it’s already up and running in the new enterprise, it’s important to focus on data cleanup now.
Good data starts with you, the logistics information system (LIS) users and managers. Focusing on data cleanup can help lighten the load on the entire enterprise and reduce processing errors. This means doing daily tasks like cleaning PBUSE, SAMS-E or ULLS-AE output queues. You should also do regular reconciliations with your supporting SSA.
Want to know if you’re on the right track? There’s a way to check. You can download data discrepancy reports from AKO, find your DODAAC and take actions to purge any invalid data before transmitting it to GCSS-Army.
