The Sustainment Enterprise Metrics Dashboard — Status, Value-Added, and Way Forward
2:00-4:00 p.m. │ Room 111 B-C
Highlight an initiative that is driving an authoritative and standard DoD-wide metrics and analytical approach to produce improvements in the sustainment enterprise. Provide information regarding the development, status, and potential of the Sustainment Enterprise Metrics Dashboard (SEMD).
Information asymmetry drives the need for a superordinate and authoritative set of metrics that provide simplified, common sustainment vernacular across the Department. A common and aligned metrics set facilitates correlations and comparisons among operational requirements, readiness drivers, program costs, and sustainment enablers that are often difficult to establish. A panel will discuss the SEMD, which was developed through the Department’s Logistics Reform Initiative to support specific user communities: 1) top-tier OSD and Service leaders who are interested in leveraging decision-quality information to support materiel availability requirements; 2) DASD and Service functional or agency staff who use business intelligence from the SEMD to assess perfor-mance, monitor program costs, and link resources to operational readiness; and 3) DASD, Service, and agency action officers and subject matter experts who leverage SEMD productivity and performance data and metrics to create solutions to availability and cost challenges.
The audience will take away key messages from these user communities as well as a synthesized perspective on the value-added and way forward for the SEMD. Participants may also help determine if this nascent capability can drive unity of effort to address materiel availability issues and produce required weapon system readiness.
