UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION (UID) Planning for Parts Marking Depot Day Albany, GA 25 Jan 2007 Chris Sautter University of Alabama Huntsville 256 824-6147 email@example.com The Big Picture UID is not about Marking Parts. UID is about “Intelligent Data”. Roles and Responsibilities - Shared Expectations are Important UID Plan SIM Plan • Requirements • Responsibilities UID Budget • Business Rules Develop Materiel UID Resources Marking Readiness Capability Budget & Resources Decide Where Select Items to Mark and Do Something to be Mark Items Marking with Mark Marked Technology Document Transact UID Registry I Engineering D Data Decisions Service/ E DLA AISs Program Needs Gen Apply Close Program Engr Gen Labels Labels Data Data Register Plan Dec UII Data Data Package Loop Plates Plates Program Engineering Generate Generate Apply Close Data Register UII Data Plan Decisions Labels Labels Loop Package UII •Register with Data Plates •Construct •How to Mark •Provide •Alert system DoD •Complete •Utilize output using •Utilize when UII record of data •Data •Where to Program Plan •Automated templates instructions applied from Program Qualifiers mark action •Guarantee Plan forward •Utilize •At trigger •Provide data •Serialization •Label serialization scheme Template common sites as part of birth •Birth Record architecture record •List of Design •UII •Verification components •Size •Provide to of marks •When to •Material Service’s mark Central •Attachment repository •Trigger Sites Method •SIM •SIM •Install alignment Integration instruction •Resources Phases of Implementation Current Status – Information Systems • Legacy systems • Paper and automated – Information on parts. • Human readable • Mix of machine readable codes with no standards. Transition Phase – Information Systems • Initial transition to compliant automated systems. • Mix of legacy and new systems. – Information on parts. • Mix of MRC and HRI • UII and non-UII Objective System – Information Systems • Fully fielded ERP solutions – Information on Parts. • Over 80% of parts marked with UID compliant MRC Significance of Transition Will last for 10-20 years depending on effort and support of implementation. Implementation decisions need to work in both Transition and Objective phases. Weapon System strategies should have the dual focus of both near term need for data and long term goals. Implementation decisions should partner with the information system changes to garner benefits of UID. – Parts that are marked should be able to be used as soon as they get to the field. – Waiting for ERP solutions to be fielded as a requirement to “do something with the data” should be avoided at all costs. Where do we start? What is the first step? Multifunctional Team (Cornerstone of UID Implementation Plan) – Field Representation • Maintenance • Users – OEM – Sustainment Organization – Engineering Directorate – Team is co-chaired • PM and Depot Define universe of parts that should be marked. Lessons Learned: – 5-10 fold increase in parts that will be tracked. Decide Where Select Items to Mark and Do Something to be Marking Mark Items with Mark Marked Technology Type of Marking Decisions Labels – Additive process to current marks Data Plates – New or replacement plates Direct Mark – Requires the most engineering for approval – Many different techniques • Laser Etch • Dot Peen • Chem Etch • Ink Jet Decide Where Select Items to Mark and Do Something to be Marking Mark Items with Mark Marked Technology UID Challenge The burden is on the PMs There are two key areas of need: – Assistance to relate DoD UID policy to the components on a weapon system. – Engineering documentation to permit the marking of components (particular DPM). A Path Forward Parts Marking Decision Engine – Examine entire weapon system – Prioritize list of components for funding – Marking instructions DPM Materials Matrix – Comprehensive collection of material test documentation – Minimize the need for additional testing Parts Marking Decision Engine Web based – http://dev.aldev.portal-dynamics.net/uiddemo/ Results from a DoD pilot program Assists in selecting components to be marked. Prioritizes the list of components for UID funding. Categorizes types of marks – Dataplates, labels, DPM Provides marking instructions to PM Home Page Candidate Selection Marking Determination Marking Definition Material Standards – Web Site • http://rsesc.uah.edu/DPM/ – Funded by DoD – Sponsored by GEIA – Rules • All data must be non-proprietary – We accept any new test data • Open to all interested parties Material Matrix Search Results Matrix Status Source Data Received from USG and Industry Univ Alabama in Huntsville continues to update data in Matrix – Hosted on UAH Website – Have Basic Lab Equipment & Research Capability Available to vet data. – Can address needs of GEIA members. Matrix Utilization Standardizes and Consolidates Available Data in One Place Joint Working Group Approach is Succeeding – Potential for $425 Million in DoD/Industry Testing Cost Avoidance if Data Sharing is Achieved Summary UID/AIT is the key enabler to execute logistics transformation. Tools are available for use by PMs. Long term commitment required. – Will not happen overnight for legacy systems. Return on investment occurs only after Information Systems are integrated with UII.
