Topic E: CSS STAMIS

Subtopic 5: DODAAC/UIC and MMC Changeover for Deployment

Observation Synopsis

Deploying units had to change from their home station DODAACs and UICs to separate ones for OIF. Many units also had to conduct a disconnect/reconnect to shift from their home station materiel management center (MMC) to a theater one. This caused many configuration problems and a lot of STAMIS down time from unit level logistics system (ULLS) users on up. However, the process did effectively isolate deployment-related costs and supply issues from home station issues and it does facilitate follow-on relief-in-place operations.

Lessons Learned

  • Many units had to disconnect/reconnect to shift from home station MMC to a theater MMC, which caused many configuration problems.
  • Identify, develop, and distribute tasks such as "Migrate to Wartime DODAAC" to battalion S4 and motor section METLs and "Transition to Wartime MMC" to division and corps logistics unit METLs.
  • Train during major unit training events such as BDE field training exercises (FTXs), division and corps WARFIGHTERs, and rotations at the CTCs to transition to "wartime" DODAACs/UICs.

DOTMLPF Implications

Doctrine and Organization: Publish the separate DODAACs/UICs and combatant command MMCs as the deployment standard.
