Officials at Computer Sciences Corp. announced this week that a CSC-led industry team that received a $199 million Army contract to design and build a computer interface between the service's field logistics systems and its new national one.
The Product Lifecycle Management Plus (PLM+) system will provide Army officials with information about the Army's products from their acquisition to fielding. PLM+ will also serve as a single point of entry for officials in the Navy, Air Force and Defense Department agencies to the service's logistics systems, CSC officials said in a Feb. 23 company statement.
"Under the PLM+ agreement, we will leverage our experience developing Logistics Modernization Program interfaces to deliver results in the form of a common set of business practices encompassing both the tactical and national levels. PLM+ is the linchpin for the Army in providing a single, integrated logistics environment, and it will help ensure that the Army has the right equipment in the right place at the right time," said Paul Cofoni, president of CSC's Federal Sector business unit, in the statement.
CSC's industry team members working on the almost six-year-long contract include Digital Fusion, IBM, Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems business unit and SAP. They will start working on the contract Feb. 28 at Fort Belvoir, Va., company officials said in the statement.
The Army's Logistics Modernization Program now supports 5,000 personnel at 12 service locations, CSC officials said in the statement.
