Australian software to track UK military supplies

Supply Chain Consulting‘s Viewlocity Control Tower Platform (CTP) has been selected by EDS as a key component for the UK Ministry of Defence’s new Management of Materiel in Transit (MMiT) project.

The MMiT project is designed to improve the management, planning and tracking of essential supplies and equipment from the UK to the MoD’s deployed operations around the world.

Recent operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have highlighted the importance of visibility of vital equipment within the supply chain. By using Supply Chain Consulting’s Viewlocity CTP product, front-line units across the Royal Navy, the Army and Royal Air Force will be able to view and track essential items as they move from the depot to the receiving unit, providing an assurance of timely delivery of these parts and supplies.

Supply Chain Consulting’s Viewlocity software suite is a supply chain visibility and extended supply chain process monitoring platform and a set of optimisation products covering supply chain design, production planning and inbound logistics. The Viewlocity software suite helps customers to plan, sense, monitor and respond to events that occur across the supply chain.

The MMiT project contract was won by EDS, and includes software from both Supply Chain Consulting and SAS. It is expected to be completed by mid 2009.
