More than 300 employees of the German Federal Armed Forces use the ORSOFT solution for maintenance planning and controlling on a daily basis. Contracting authority is the Federal Agency for Accouterment, Information Technology and Utilization of the Federal Armed Forces (BAAINBw).
Task Coordination for Logistic Control Units
The ORSOFT Solution APS KUSS – Advanced Planning and Scheduling Capacity Planning and Controlling System – is used for education and training tasks of military maintenance personnel. Detailed demands of education or training units (department, supply and material planning number) are reported to Logistic Control Units and HIL GmbH (Maintenance Corporation of the Federal Armed Forces). In order to cover demands, these units send defective machinery and equipment to the requesting departments. If there is no suitable equipment available in the area of responsibility, the Logistic Center of the Federal Armed Forces takes over. It operates supra-regional and has access to depot and mission-transfer stocks. An extensive and hierarchy-based controlling provides all stakeholders with consistent reports and overviews.
Controlling Availability of Heavy Machinery
APS HIL is used to supervise the availability of heavy accouterment within the organizational area of the assigned control unit. Maintenance tasks are scheduled according to the units requirements (e.g. for training maneuvers). The tool also covers tasks of controlling regarding the performance contract between the Federal Armed Forces and HIL GmbH.
