Logistics & Configuration Management

Dalma Tech² sees Logistics and Configuration Management as a multifaceted process with many elements. Each element is important in its own way. With Dalma Tech²’s approach they are brought together under one umbrella and integrated into one cohesive unit.  Dalma Tech²’s capability in logistics is identified under four (4) distinct categories:

  • Business Logistics - The science of planning, design, and support of business operations of procurement, purchasing, inventory, warehousing, distribution, transportation, customer support, financial and human resources.
  • Acquisition Logistics - Acquisition Logistics is everything involved in acquiring logistics support equipment and personnel for project systems. The process of systematically identifying, defining, designing, developing, producing, acquiring, delivering, installing, and upgrading logistics support capability requirements through the acquisition process for project subsystems and equipment.
  • Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) - ILS is a management function that provides planning, funding, and functioning controls which help to assure that the system meets performance requirements, is developed at a reasonable price, and can be supported throughout its life cycle. ILS encompasses the unified management of the technical logistics elements that plan and develop the support requirements for a system. This can include hardware, software, and the provisioning of training and maintenance resources.
  • Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) - Simply put, LSA is the iterative process of identifying support requirements for a new system, especially in the early stages of system design. The main goals of LSA are to ensure that the system will perform as intended and to influence the design for supportability and affordability.

Dalma Tech²’s Configuration Management (CM) concentrates on the capability, prior to and after integration, to measure and document system changes and keep released information clear, concise and valid. As information integrity improves, the need for corrective action declines. As corrective action declines, real improvements become increasingly robust. In other words, Dalma Tech² understands configuration management and can therefore focus on real improvements (new products, better processes, and so on).

To let Dalma Tech² "manage a projects CM" is to provide a better business process infrastructure and thereby enable other core business processes to be more reliable and efficient.
