As the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the aerospace industry, and international partners embark on a bold new vision of human and robotic space exploration beyond Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO), Supply Chain Management (SCM) becomes a key piece of the framework for America’s space technology investment. This project seeks to motivate the aerospace community to deploy the fundamentals of SCM along with simulation and modeling breakthroughs with the objective of growing a risk shared endeavor between customer and contractor. This endeavor will utilize an integrated and cost effective supply chain through collaborative demand planning, Component Supply Management (CSM), product standardization, rapid mobilization of consolidated manufacturing sources and SCM simulation and modeling.

Unformatted text preview: In today’s environment, the supply chain truly encompasses a much broader spectrum. A SCM process serves as an integrated network of materials and information flow supporting a common hardware sparing and repair philosophy throughout a program for long-term support of space exploration. A NASA supply chain implementation brings the methodology needed for planning and executing: • The selection of flexible and reliable sources of supply during the entire system lifecycle; • Key performance indicator metrics based on the Supply Chain Operations Reference Model (SCOR) and used to guide improvement investments. This project will also redefine the Supply Chain Councils' five step process but with a NASA-wide deployment strategy. OEM 2009 EIN 6905 Luke Setzer page 1 of 1...
