Abstract
Systems integration problems are magnified on large DoD projects built by distributed multi-contractor teams using heterogeneous information systems. The challenge is to rapidly access and exploit these information systems while managing costs and risks.Organizations have invested huge sums of money over many years in systems to operate their businesses successfully. These are mission-critical systems, but having been implemented over a number of years using different technologies, they rarely work wellwith each other. For example, operations and maintenance activities on major defense systems rely on information from many legacy logistics databases, such as CAMS and NALCOMIS. The non-integrated data in these systems needs to be integrated to enablereal-time, 360¿-visibility into the parts, supplies, equipment and tasks required to support automated supply chain processing. Modus Operandi proposes the Collaborative Data Access (CODA) system to address these challenges. CODA uses an N-tier, openstandards-based architecture. CODA will integrate legacy and new systems into an object-oriented (OO) system. CODA will not replace existing systems but rather supports a uniform interface layer. Once systems are integrated, high-level functions supportingmulti-contractor activities such as program status and oversight, complex analysis and reporting, acquisition, system development, and collaborative heterogeneous information access can be accomplished. Benefits:- Reduced integration cost and risk- Rapid information discovery and understanding- Automated support for information modeling and data integration- Increased visibility into legacy system informationPotential Commercial Applications- Integrated workgroup support- Enterprise information systems integration- Supply chain management- Operations and maintenance (logistics)- Product engineering, support and management- Decision support systems
