ABSTRACT: Software applications within any large-scale enterprise environment rarely, if ever, live in isolation. System users require access to enterprise functions regardless of the actual system in which that functionality may exist. Therefore, such distributed systems need to be"connected"into an integrated solution. The consistency of the data throughout this integration process is paramount as it leads directly to issues of data quality and trustworthiness across the enterprise. Within the Logistics Enterprise of the USAF there exists a need for a management system that provides a core, foundational approach to capturing, analyzing, and correcting exceptions and other errors. This system must be robust, service-oriented, and should be based on accepted enterprise standards. It should be extensible, able to handle errors from a wide variety of sources and able to encapsulate many types of errors with different properties. The Praeses team proposes an innovative approach called Logistics Error Management Analysis and Reporting System (LEMARS). LEMARS leverages innovative messaging and storage technologies to develop a tool suite that provides the ability to identify, resolve, report, and manage errors. The proposed Phase I will develop and demonstrate a proof of concept of LEMARS and lay the groundwork for product development in Phase II. BENEFIT: LEMARS will allow system analysts to analyze, quantify, report, and respond to data integrity and quality issues, along with other exceptions, by providing the tools and messaging infrastructure they need without the time and resources required to develop it for each new system that"s brought on board. Although initially envisioned as a tool to be used across DoD logistics systems, LEMARS will be capable of being utilized across a number of different DoD systems along with commercial entities that have a similar need for their logistics and non-logistics systems. LEMARS will become the Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) product that both DoD activities and commercial companies will choose to implement instead of developing their own solution for collective management of distributed data, process, and system errors.
