Relief For Expedited DoD Audit Requirements Found in RMS Partnership Feature Article

Share Article

The RMS Partnership, a not-for-profit organization of industry and government organizations committed to the advancement of RMS/L, Reliability, Maintainability, Sustainability and Logistics within the systems engineering community published a feature article by Clockwork Solutions in its December 2011 Newsletter. The article entitled Expedited DoD Audit Requirement: Impact on Defense RMS/L provides a strategic solution for easing the pain often associated with audits, particularly first time audits. Given the size and complexity of the Department of Defense, the difficulty and pain of this first time audit is enormous. Clockwork’s article was published to support Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s October 2011 directive to accelerate the Department of Defense (DoD) preparedness for audit from 2017 to 2014.

The expedited first time audit requirements given to DoD by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and the U.S. Congress late last year raises significant challenges for those who manage military acquisition, operations, and maintenance expenditures. RMS/L (Reliability, Maintainability, Supportability and Logistics) are key combat readiness elements within those expenditures.    

Clockwork Solutions Inc., Director of Marketing, Giancarlo Newsome, explains how Predictive Modeling and Simulation a type of Predictive Analytics or Business Intelligence technology can provide significant relief to the traditional challenges associated with audits. Mr. Newsome summarized how:

“Predictive Modeling and Simulation effectively allows system or program managers to pre-audit their future organizational performance. Predictive Modeling and Simulation allows decision makers to assess and optimize their decisions today to best position their organization for success in tomorrow’s audit.”
