"Improving responsiveness requires continual innovation, and technology has created the opportunity to use knowledge discovery for innovation and continual improvement in supply chain logistics. DMLSS can use knowledge discovery to increase medicallogistics support effectiveness while reducing costs in two distinct environments: Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) and deployed theater forces. The changing composition of military activities, technology, and adversaries increases the possible rapiddeployment of forces in a widening variety of scenarios, with more potential medical risks and challenges. Therefore, DMLSS must be able to rapidly deploy knowledge discovery and apply results to supply chain logistics and the early detection of criticalevents. However, while many excellent data mining tools exist, the process of knowledge discovery and its application is elusive (and frustrating) for most organizations. The main goal of the proposed initiative is to design, develop, and validate aKnowledge Discovery Framework (KDF) for the DoD Medical Logistics community. The main product of this effort will be the Medical Materiel Knowledge Discoverer (MMKD), a configurable, dashboard driven system for knowledge discovery with drill downcapability for rapid navigation through data and rapidly deployable to capture knowledge, identify of out of balance conditions, and apply decision optimization techniques. The result of MMKD will be a solu
