Advancing MILIS - Ensuring interoperability across systems in Army, the joint environment, and key allies
Defence logistics underpin Defence capability. An essential component of successful logistics systems is interoperability – the capacity for diverse systems to work together. The current Defence logistics approach comprises diverse and separately developed information systems. Army operates the Military Integrated Logistics Information System (MILIS). However, the stove-pipe nature of MILIS results in interoperability issues with other systems in defence such as SLIM (Ships Logistics Inventory Management System) and Air Log (Air force logistics systems). All three systems are independently auditable. However, there are no synchronised support functions to allow unified inventory and asset tracking. This project seeks to address this issue.
