Navy Stock Points are vital links in the Navy's supply/ maintenance network; their performance has a direct impact on supply response time and operational availability of fleet equipment. One of the major functions performed at a stock point is the commercial acquisition of non-standard material. This thesis examines the production process at a Navy Stock Point that acquires non-standard material as a system and as a series of functional organizations. Three automated management control systems are employed at Navy Stock Points to facilitate the inventory control, material acquisition, and accounting processes involved in the commercial acquisition production process. Each of these control systems was independently designed to perform a specialized function within the stock point structure. This thesis discusses each system, UADPS-SP, APADE II, and IDA, their individual development and the interfaces between them. The main thrust of this thesis is to determine if the total logistic effort could be improved by integrating three independent systems into one production oriented system to better control the commercial acquisition of non-standard material at Navy Stock Points.
