EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE:CSC) announced today that its U.S. Army Logistics Modernization Program (LMP) received the 2006 Excellence in Enterprise Integration Award from the Association for Enterprise Integration and an honorable mention for Military Logistics Program of the Year from the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement. CSC is the lead systems integrator for the LMP.
"As the world's largest fully integrated supply chain planning and execution solution, the LMP is the backbone sustaining national Army legacy logistics systems," said Project Manager COL Scott Lambert. "These awards recognize the accomplishments of the entire LMP team and their dedication in supporting America's soldiers."
"The two awards come at an important time as the LMP continues to deliver sound operational results for the Army and our troops," said Sheri Thureen, vice president and program manager of CSC's Federal Sector Enterprise Business Systems operation. "These recognitions are a tremendous honor for CSC and the rest of the LMP team."
The LMP team was acknowledged for its growth as one of the top innovators in logistics technology. The program was recognized for its efficiency in helping the Army and the Department of Defense create an environment that builds, sustains and generates warfighting capabilities through an integrated logistics enterprise. In addition to showing measurable performance improvement, the LMP's use of open, scalable information systems architecture, and its system availability and response time statistics, automated processing capabilities and security access standards put it ahead of other candidates.
As the cornerstone of the Single Army Logistics Enterprise, the LMP provides national-level logistics business practices that modernize the Army's supply chain. By eliminating extensive manual intervention, the LMP reduces the time, funding and human resources required to process the millions of transactions the Army initiates on an annual basis.
The LMP will be fully deployed in 2010 with the support of the Army's Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems. The program currently manages $4.5 billion in inventory, processes more than $5 billion in customer sales and is used by 4,000 professionals.
