CSC Deploys Enterprise Resource Planning System to Support Army Logistics Modernization
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., July 18, 2003 -- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced that the company completed successful initial deployment of the first phase of the U.S. Army's Logistics Modernization Program (LMP) on July 7.
LMP is designed to modernize the Army's national-level logistics business practices and supporting information technology (IT). Deployment of LMP is a key component of the Army's transformation campaign and will create measurable improvements in Army readiness. The system provides the U.S. Army Materiel Command (USAMC) with a modern, collaborative environment that will help the command concentrate on its core functions and make rapid, timely decisions.
The LMP platform is based on SAP, the leading commercial enterprise resource planning system. The system improves the accuracy of logistics and financial data available to USAMC and increases the command's access to real- time transactional data.
"This ERP implementation is one of the largest and most complex ever," said Paul Cofoni, president of CSC's Federal Sector business unit. "The Logistics Modernization Program will result in a modern system that will deliver the Army's equipment and spare parts more efficiently and transparently than ever before."
The LMP system's pilot deployments were to the Army's Communications and Electronics Command, USAMC's headquarters staff, the Tobyhanna Army Depot, the Army Security Assistance Command, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, and the Army's Soldier and Biological Chemical Command. Over the next year, LMP will be deployed to other USAMC commands, depots and arsenals across the country.
CSC's LMP team members include AT&T Government Solutions, BearingPoint, Calibre Systems, Inc., IBM, Raytheon, SAP America and Veridian IT Services.
