GCSS-Army is the primary tactical logistics enabler to achieve
the Army Campaign Plan and Combat Support/Combat Service Support
(CS/CSS) Transformation Vision in support of soldiers in the field.
The GCSS-Army rollout will allow more than 135,000 soldier and
contractor users in the total army to view complete logistics
management information and make timely, data-driven decisions.
The initiative will integrate and streamline operations from
factory to foxhole across a single army logistics enterprise and
will replace 14 standard army mission information system baselines
comprising several thousand disparate legacy applications currently
in use worldwide.
Currently the largest and most complex U.S. Army logistics
automation technology initiative, Global Combat Support System-Army
(GCSS-Army) is being implemented to transform supply chain business
processes to enhance logistics support of Army tactical combat
The software technology solution is based on a
SAP application, which will provide the
U.S. Army with accurate logistics management information for
effective execution of supply, maintenance and property
accountability operations as well as timely data sharing with other
Army and Department of Defense automation systems.
