Supply Chain Solutions for DoD from the Metals Industry
DoD Logistics Supply Chain Solutions:
Improvement Through Technology
Logistics Management System (LoMaS®)
Technology Transfer Opportunity
The competitive nature of the steel industry necessitates extremely sophisticated supply
chain discipline. Margins are razor thin and competition is cut-throat. If DoD were to adopt
steel industry lessons learned and steel industry supply chain technology, DoD supply chain
efficiency would improve and costs would plummet.
Capabilities
 No lost or stolen inventory
 No unnecessary inventory
buildup or over-buying
 No wasted warranty coverage
 No ownership confusion with
trade ins
 No loss of accountability
 No loss of shipping prioritization
discipline and shipping mode
optimization
 No loss of end-to-end visibility,
including last mile, despite interorganizational hand-offs
New Opportunities
 DoD volume buys steel, supplies
defense industry, saves on
volume buying, eliminates
vendor mark up
 DoD eliminates unnecessary intheater buildup and knows how
best to pull equipment from
theater
 DoD stops paying for vendor
errors and warranty item repairs
 DoD knows precisely what it
owns, where it is, what condition
its in, and how to move it 24/7.

LoMaS® the Tool for Vendor Managed
Inventory and Resale programs
• VMI is managed using the WMS and inventory visibility
capabilities of LoMaS® , with bar code scanners, or RFID.
• LoMaS® allows for VMI from any, or many sources. Metals
purchased from a variety of companies can be managed on
one platform
• Companies can specify LoMaS® as the platform which their
metals suppliers use to implement effective VMI for inbound
metals
• Can manage all partners and data to run a resale program
What benefits can be expected from
VMI?
•
Typical major benefits:
– Minimize the “Bull Whip” effect
– Increase inventory turns AND
increase in-stock coverage
– Decrease stock-outs AND
decrease premium coverage charges
• Increase revenue and reduce assets => improve ROA
•
Requires fundamental changes in relationship between trading partners
•
Enables fundamental changes in relationship between trading partners
•
Proven in numerous consumer and industrial marketing applications
•
Requires very low cost information system to manage very frequent inventory
position updates and replenishment orders (releases)
Resale, a Cost saving idea enabled by LoMaS
• MMNA (Mitsubishi Motors North America) example:
– MMNA goal to streamline the steel supply chain
– MMNA goal to volume-buy steel from suppliers and “resell” to their parts
manufacturers at MMNA cost
• Results in no cost markup on the material used to make the part
– MMNA goal to automate business processes where possible
– MMNA requirement to reduce errors and disruptions
• LoMaS provides the tool for:
– Enhanced Inventory Management capability
– Visibility of material & material movements
– Tactical planning & execution
– Longer-term management (trends/patterns, etc)
MMNA Example (con’t)
• LoMaS:
– Collects all resale information in one location through a common, webbased system
– Collects and displays MMNA EDI Release information
– Enables projection of steel needs based on Release Requirements
– Entire supply chain can access all pertinent information
– Enables on-line ordering of steel
– Enables audit of released needs vs. actual ordered
– Enables regular updates of parts data through regular MMNA Host
downloads of ADDs and DELETEs
