NORFOLK (NNS) -- The Navy Lessons Learned Information System (NLLIS) has been upgraded for easier user interface, navigation and better search results.

NLLIS is a comprehensive knowledge management system that collects, shares, tracks and manages Navy lessons learned to improve the development and readiness of the Fleet.

Navy Warfare Development Command manages the Navy Lessons Learned Program and NLLIS.

"As the comprehensive source of Navy Lessons Learned, NLLIS is an important destination for the Fleet to learn from past lessons when planning future tasks or missions," said Rear Adm. Scott B. Jerabek, commander, NWDC. "The improved features will benefit users through faster, more comprehensive and organized searches."

Specific enhancements include:

* Search capabilities and keyword filters were upgraded to return improved results and data elements include doctrine, tasks and after action reports. Results are also now displayed by type, such as observations, port visits and after action reports.

* The task list module now includes the Universal Joint Task List and Service Tasks Lists. Users can conduct a keyword search from this task content that can then be expanded to also view tagged joint lessons learned.

* Binders - personalized information around a specific topic - was completely redesigned for easier use, including improved search features, breadcrumb navigation and enhanced displays views.

* Administrators and Lesson Managers can restrict visibility of selected observations to just their own organization or an assigned group by setting them up as "published" or "unpublished."

With more than 90,000 documents, NLLIS is the central repository for all Navy Lessons Learned. It is housed under the Joint Lessons Learned Information System and can be accessed at
