MJDI

#1
I am a storeman in Her Majesty's Q&Ms Dept and I hear there is rumour of a new tri-service Logistics IT system called MJDI. Will this system be better than the last pile of pooh (UNICOM Q) given to us?

What does MJDI stand for?

It's a subsidiary of C&A.

If you are in the Q and Ms which department exactly? The Qs or the Ms. I was in REME ,obviously, so I presume I would have worked with the M and Ts. Doesn's sound like a squddie talking to me unless things have changed a helluva lot soince I came out.

spanky - that is not exactly how I have ever heard anyone refer to stores. Please stop sounding like a journo fishing.

It stands for Management of the Joint Deployed Inventory. It is better than Unicom Q - in fact it is better than all the other systems currently in use in RN, Army or RAF. It exists and the first version of it is being used live on one unit (not Army). It has been developed by a Joint team to reflect needs of all areas.

I seem to remember that MJDI is a project name and I think it stands for Managing the Joint Deployed Inventory, or something like that. I don't recall if it is hardware, software or both. I am sure that there will be an aspiration for it to incorporate or be linked into some form of Total Asset Visibility (TAV) system.

The MOD (and indeed other government departments) do not seem to have a brilliant track record with new IT systems. In the early part of this decade something called the Defence Stores Management System/Solution (DSMS) was being developed. IIRC, that was abandoned at the £70M to £80M mark. That is of course much cheaper that other projects, such as BOWMAN and Nimrod, but its abandonment meant that numerous other legacy systems had to soldier on into obsolescence.

Hopefuly MJDI wil enjoy more success.

Mr_Logic - you are half right on all of what you say. Either check facts or distill a little. There are also vast differences between methodology, procurement and starting point for MJDI which means it cannot really be compared with previous attempts at Joint systems. TAV is a red herring there as well.

OK, so I'm half right on all of what I say? That is a bold statement for you to make seeing as I don't think you know me or even a small percentage of what I say. If I said something that was incorrect or that you find contentious on this site feel free to provide facts or an explanation. Just criticising is negative and a bit pointless.

"Either check facts or distill a little." What do you mean by that?

"TAV is a red herring there as well." Really, why? Every LAND, DLO and RLC presentation I have been to that discusses the supply chain and mounting bridge seem to mention it as being quite important. Have they all changed their minds?

I recall from a previous thread that you are an RAF Supplier. You questioned the Army QM system and yet did not claim to have served any time at RD. It seems here that something I said grated with you and your opinions. Was it that DSMS was cancelled or was it the comment ref Nimrod? The government does have a very poor record of IT procurement.

Feel free to elaborate on your criticism and comments.

It's the dog's bollocks and 1,000 time better than UNICOM or GLOBAL or any of the other shite.

A rumour... It has been in a while and is operational, as for is it any good, only time and use will tell... Anything has to be better than OOB.

It is being rolled out to Land Units now, it will take a while to convert all units from current systems though.
As for how good it is, I will let the Users decide, I just play with it.

Bloody hell you guys are behind the times!!!

MJDI has been out for a while now (although now yet widespread) to replace UNICOM, OASIS and USSAS. The Raf have been training my lot (RN Supply Chain ratings) down RAF Halton for the last 2 years. It's more of an upgrade of the RAF's USSAS which uses a GUI piont and click interface (it's like unicom but actually works) rather than having to remember transaction codes. It's installed down at HMS Seahawk (interservice air stores visability) and will be rooling out to RN ships in the next few years.

My stores PO hates it compared to OASIS. But that may be due to him being old and only just getting into OASIS and doing about 3 peoples jobs.

I havn't touched it, was on USASS in Culdrose as a sprog but apart from the odd stint down the office when duty SA I very rarely touch OASIS either. Spent more time on Unicom (waiting for a page to load most the time) than anything else. My PO can't stop banging on about how great it is to be able to see if another unit has what you want without having to phone fleet.
