PdM Data Environment & Integration (DE&I)

1. Advanced Tech
DDIL will extend user access to GCSS-MC
capabilities to all operational environments,
specifically to disadvantaged networks and
disconnected environments to better support
garrison, shipboard, and expeditionary operational
IUID establishes unique item identifiers (UII) within
the DoD by assigning a machine-readable
character string or number to a discrete item,
which will interface with Global Combat Support
System-Marine Corps (GCSS-MC) / Logistics Chain
Management (LCM).

Joint Systems


4. LDS/DaaS
LDS will focus on data preparation and access
including data modeling, design and integration
into common functional schemas, building of a
single USMC Logistics Data Warehouse,
supporting Business Intelligence (BI), Analytics,
Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence
LDS Phase 2 will make data via Marine Corps
Enterprise Network (MCEN) for analytics, which
retains current Enterprise Ground Equipment
Management (EGEM) governance board defined
business operations of EGEM Data Repository
(EDR) and Master Data Repository (MDR) by
creating a cloud-based data hub.

PdM Tactical Logistics Systems (TLS)

TLS Mission
To develop, sustain and deploy enterprise and disconnected
mobile logistics information technology tools in support of
garrison and operational forces in low bandwidth/degraded
environments. Tactical Logistics Systems will provide enhanced
visibility for commanders dashboard, transportation
management and warehousing and inventory management
systems thereby increasing logistics visibility and capability to
the Marine Corps.

TLS End State Technology
Fully synchronized, automated, integrated, and innovative 21st
century technologies supplying the Marine with real-time and
accurate logistics data from both the garrison and operational

Why Are We Changing?

Historical Background and Problem Set

At this time, the only portion of the high-level GCSS-MC Capability Development Document
requirements that was decomposed into an actionable set of lower level requirements for
supply and maintenance in the LCM increment one Capability Production Document.

Much of the LI2S-MC portfolio of today is still GCSS MC increment 1 and a collection of
legacy Business Information Technology (IT) programs which were developed individually to
address specific Logistics Business IT functions with minimal consideration for integration
across the portfolio.

(hardware, software,
Due to technology limitations at
bandwidth), these systems do not support logistics in a contested battlespace to the extent

the time of development

The lack of current integrated requirements and Concept of Operations (CONOPS) has
limited the availability of funding and resources and hamstrung any ability for rapid
capability development not based on historical requirements, this has limited the ability to
provide operators with an integrated solution that encompasses all the capabilities of these
legacy systems and limited development of new capabilities.

Where Are We Going?

Future Intent

USMC intent is to replace the numerous legacy LOG IT systems with a Log IT C2
capability that operates in a disconnected, disadvantaged environment and acts as
the user interface to GCSS-MC. (Estimated contract award FY 26).

Logistics Information Technology
Command & Control (C2) Roadmap

Model Based Mission Engineering (MBME)

The disciplined and consistent implementation of model-based engineering at the
Enterprise level to:
Enable Marine Corps operational logistics success in contested operating environments, with a
specific focus on tactical logistics functions as described in the Marine Corps Expeditionary
Advanced Basing Operations (EABO) future operating concept.

Model logistics IT systems capable of supporting operations in Denied, Degraded, Intermittent, and

or Latent (DDIL) communications and otherwise contested operating environments.

The LOG IT C2 Working Group
Is comprised of a broad array of representatives from DC I&L, DC CD&I, PM LI2S, Logistics
Command and the Fleet Marine Force.

Integrates the approved scenarios, wargame outputs, and logistics subject matter expertise into
an integrated set of models and requirements that enable Expeditionary Advanced Base
Operations (EABO).

MBME Approach to deliver LOG IT C2 Capability

Phase 1: Establish LOG C2/IT priorities (Scenarios / Vignettes)

Establish a prioritized backlog of vignettes that will fuel model development and ultimately
the MBME analysis that will shape the CBA.

Phase 2: Define the current state operations and architecture

Develop models of current state operations in Business Process Model and Notion (BPMN)
that depict the mission threads.

Identify the current state enablers that support the mission thread. These systems in
aggregate comprise the current state architecture.

Phase 3 Identify the current state capability gaps and threats

Scan the current state mission threads and enablers to identify potential gaps and threats
created by the implementation of EABO.

Phase 4 Identify future state operations and architecture

Develops future state mission threads and determine required future enablers.

Phase 5 Conduct model-based analysis

EXAMPLE of Phase 4
Future State Operator Maintenance Thread

Model-Based Analysis

What if analyses to be incorporated into the CBA process include
assessing changes to:

The mission
The capabilities necessary to support the mission
The attributes and standards required to provide effective capabilities
The capability gaps
The operational risks and prioritization of capability gaps
Non-material solutions that can address gaps (i.e. DOTMLPF)

The MMBE (CDA) Output will support the CBA in the development
of CONOPS and Initial Capabilities Documents in support of POM
