Integration of Computer-Aided Acquisition & Logistic Support (CALS) components into the ROK Army information infrastructure
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of the CALS initiative is to enable integration of enterprises on a worldwide basis. The vision is for all or parts of a single enterprise, or for example, an original equipment manufacturer and its suppliers, or a consortium of public and private groups and academia, to be able to work from a common digital database, in real time, on the design, development, manufacturing, distribution and servicing of products. The direct benefits would come through substantial reductions in product-to-market time and costs, along with significant enhancements in quality and performance. Having described the Continuous Acquisition and Life-cycle Support (CAL S) information management system (IMS) employed by the United States military to maintain and distribute technical support documents for weapons and materials, this thesis proposes an overall strategy for integrating the information management concepts of CALS into the infrastructure of the Army of the Republic of Korea (ROK)
