ProModel Corporation, a leading predictive analytic BI software and services company provides the custom predictive analytic software and services used by US Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) to source and synchronize Army resources.
The 2009 Army Knowledge Management Award in Technology was presented to FORSCOM and its development team by LTG Sorenson (CIOG6)at the LandWarNet Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on August 20, 2009. The award for AST was accepted by Mr. Larry Nix, Chief, Knowledge Management Branch, DCS G-3/5/7 on behalf of the AST Team under the direction of Mr. Fred Rawcliffe (AST Project Manager).
AST is remaking the way FORSCOM conducts its planning and sourcing process in ARFORGEN. AST provides the Army with the means to view the predicted impact of today's synchronization decisions on tomorrow's utilization of the Army inventory moving through ARFORGEN. AST "on screen" capabilities consolidates data from multiple sources, applies existing or "what if" business rules, simulates the outcome, and automatically depicts results thereby eliminating lengthy manual, linear, and presentation based methods previously employed. AST cut single Courses of Action development time from days to minutes while enabling multiple Courses of Action production within the same timeframe.
By combining the "stove-piped" functions inherent in Army Force Generation, AST provides a means for the Army to have a collective, common view of Army Force Generation from the unit through the service level.
ProModel Corporation and its' technical team has been the bedrock on which the functional technology and capabilities of AST was assembled. Mr. Keith Vadas, ProModel Corporation President and CEO, expressed his appreciation in the recognition of AST technology in serving Army needs. Future evolution will involve application of leading edge technology, leveraging Micro-
soft Silverlight, and other advanced platforms."
