Lt. Gen. Mark Wise, deputy commandant for aviation (DC/A) recently visited Naval Supply Systems Command Weapon Systems Support’s (NAVSUP WSS) Philadelphia site to receive an update on the command’s Marine aircraft platforms and discuss future readiness opportunities.
Lt. Gen. Wise met with key personnel and engaged with the Marine personnel to gain a better understanding of the initiatives NAVSUP WSS are currently implementing as the end-to-end supply chain manager.
Rear Adm. Doug Noble, Commander, NAVSUP WSS, presented Lt. Gen. Wise with an introduction to NAVSUP WSS and walked him through how the command is structured and currently operating in a virtual environment.
“The workforce has shown resilience and has accomplished a vast deal this fiscal year despite the max telework conditions,” stated Rear Adm. Noble. “Our readiness metrics are trending in a positive direction, which enables us to fully support our mission partners.”
Following the introduction, leadership from the finance, contracting, and aviation allowancing departments gave in-depth briefs on both their accomplishments and challenges. Additionally, Marine personnel from NAVSUP WSS’s aircraft platforms, H-53, H-1, F/A-18, C-130, V-22, engines and AV-8 provided “deep dives” on current strategic initiatives geared toward decreasing backorders, increasing vendor capacity, improving forecasting, progressing industry collaboration and ultimately continuing to increase readiness.
“All of this is very encouraging and commendable. Keep up the good work,” commended Lt. Gen. Wise.
In addition to the briefs and informative discussions, Lt. Gen. Wise was given a demonstration of NAVSUP WSS’s interactive web-based Logistics Cell (LOGCELL). The LOGCELL tool provides a common operating picture by fusing together multiple data sources so that problem areas can identified and addressed quickly and with real-time data.
“It is interesting to see how this [tool] connects with other organizations who are interested in getting outcomes,” said Lt. Gen. Wise. “The data you’re sharing is phenomenal and can allow for better forecasting and decision making.”
