EnablingIntensive Life Cycle Support Management by Machine – Readable Unique Item Identifiers
Item Unique Identification (IUID) Objective • IUID is a common sense approach: • Mark items1 with machine readable unique item identifiers (UIIs) • Centrally register UII pedigree data and value for each marked item • Retrieve UII from item in use through automatic data capture • Make UII a common key in acquisition, supply, maintenance and financial data bases to associate: • Value to items • Maintenance history to items • Item accountability to organizations • Locations to items • IUID helps to achieve value and extend resources: • Exploits automatic data capture to improve productivity • Enhances precision of logistics, contracting, and financial business transactions • Consistently captures the value of items DoD buys, controls these items during their use, and improves item performance • Tracks items in property accountability, inventory, and financial management systems toward achieving compliance with the Chief Financial Officers Act. • Expands the population of serialized items (UIIs) available for intensive life cycle management support processes 1 – Items over $5,000 in unit cost + serially managed, mission essential or sensitive items under $5,000 + DoD serially managed embedded items regardless of cost and their parent item
IUID Registry Statistics(through 7 June 06) Goal: 97M UIIs • 257,772 Items registered • 205,431 New items • 52,341 Legacy • 354 Contractors have delivered new UIIs • 208 of the contractors (59%) are small businesses • Average growth rate over 15,000 UIIs/week • 44,171 Items are in GFP status • 3,620 contracts with GFP listed

Legacy Unique Item Tracking • Serial Number Tracking (SNT) efforts exist today for such items as high-value parts, classified assets, aviation “safety-of-flight” parts and many missile system components. They may or may not be registered as Unique Item Tracking programs. • (b) Unique Item Tracking (UIT) programs for selected items maintain visibility of each uniquely identified asset for the primary purpose of inventory control and/or engineering analysis. Security, accountability, safety, maintenance, operational readiness, warranty applicability, and other areas that may benefit from the tracking process are also reasons for UIT.
Registered Unique Item Tracking (UIT) Programs Note: No uniform use of machine-readable marking
Capabilities Enabled by Unique Identification of Items Key: Machine-readable marking required to enhance data capture

Identify Item Improving Maintenance Of Military Gear IUID enables Speed and Precision in the DoD Supply Chain through Better Information: • Better communication between maintainers on the front lines and depots • Better tracking of replacement components • More awareness of the history of parts • Restructuring the work to eliminate waste Rapid Access to Information • Part identification • Maintenance history • Hours deployed in the field • Home depot • Manufacturer
Integrated Asset Visibility through IUID: Policy • Total life cycle management of all items with Unique Item Identifiers (UIIs) will include cradle to grave asset visibility: • UIIs shall be identified in the Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS) as requiring asset tracking under a specific tracking initiative, or as requiring IUID under IUID policy. • Information systems will capture and be capable of information exchange of all business events that effect changes to the condition and/or location of these items as a by-product of standard logistics transaction exchange under the Defense Logistics Management System (DLMS). • The DoD IUID Registry will be capable of identifying and reporting the current condition and location of all items for which IUID is applicable, exclusive of security sensitive assets. • The DoD Components may employ independent updates to the registry to comply with this policy where non-DLMS compliant systems impede execution of this policy.
Integrated Asset Visibility through IUID:Potential Business Event Transactions • Potential business events to capture and either report to the IUID registry or have available in the Defense Automatic Addressing Systems Center (DAASC) data store for interrogation. • Shipment by Vendor to DSS • Shipment by Vendor to Customer (DVD) - govt. or another contractor • Receipt by DSS from vendor • Receipt by DSS from another DSS Depot • DSS recording a change in ownership/condition • Receipt by DSS from Maintenance Depot (organic or contractor) • Receipt by DSS from customer (material return) • Issue by DSS release to transportation carrier • Delivery by carrier to receiving port of debarkation (AOD) • Issue by (AOD) to transportation carrier • Delivery by carrier to receiving port of embarkation (AOE) • Issue by (AOE) to transportation carrier • Delivery by carrier to receiving theater distribution point • Issue by theater distribution point to customer • Item shipped to DRMS • Item received by DRMS • DRMS donation, demil or sale
IUID in the UIT Environment UIIs need to appear on package identification as well as in the transactions DLMS transactions have been modified MIL-STD-129 changes are being proposed DoD 4500.9-R and DoD 4000.25-1-M are being reviewed UIT is thwarted by errors of execution that begin with the shipper Incomplete package identification Incomplete documentation IUID and UIT processing in DSS both use UII terminology DSS UIIs are control numbers unique within DSS UIT needs to incorporate UIIs that are globally unique item identifiers UIIs are generated in receiving if serial numbers are missing from package identification and documentation Replacement UIIs cannot be generated from item serial numbers Missing UIIs must be obtained from item marks or the registry Mismatched receipts and due-ins are generally irreconcilable Inordinate resources can be expended to correct misidentification Must be solved at the source Packagers and shippers require proper AIT and data transmission capabilities
IUID Impact • Enabling common AIT infrastructure by synching the marking standards • Bigger universe of marked items requiring visibility • Will impact all Automated Information Systems (AIS) • Broader application than prior approaches • Full life cycle management support Bottom Line: Opportunity to build on and surpass prior efforts
