The purpose of this Master of Business Administration project is to identify possible expansion capabilities, by researching the most cost-effective two-dimensional barcode technology known as an item unique identification that will allow for tracking Department of the Navy assets from cradle to grave. While the Navy is not 100 percent complete, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics mandated that all new tangible and legacy items over $5,000 and/or serially managed, mission critical, or controlled by inventory, must be serialized and registered by 2010. There are two methods that the Navy can use to mark such items: intrusive and nonintrusive. For legacy items, the best method to mark an item would be nonintrusive, due to the criticality of maintaining the integrity of the item for safety reasons. Thus, it was determined that the best marking procedure for legacy items would be metal foil tags, generated by a contracting company, since they are the most cost-effective, nonintrusive marking method.
