GCSS implementation begins within II MEF

25 Jul 2011 | Sgt. Justin J. Shemanski

Beginning July 25, several units within II Marine Expeditionary Force, including the 2nd Marine Logistics Group, will begin transitioning to the new Global Combat Support System – Marine Corps.

Over the next 11 weeks, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, along with 2nd Medical and 2nd Supply Battalions, will be among the first units executing the implementation aboard Camp Lejeune. All units are scheduled to be complete by December 2012.

Ten years in the making, the new Web-enabled system will replace two existing legacy systems – Marine Corps Integrated Maintenance Management Systems (MIMMS) and Supported Activities Supply System (SASSY) – and provide all logistics personnel the convenience of operating from one common data source.

“The implementation will really set the Marine Corps up to move into the future,” said John Chandler, Headquarters Marine Corps’ liaison for Logistics Policies and II Marine Expeditionary Force.

“Improved asset visibility is one of the greatest improvements,” he noted.

If a Marine in the field needs anything from brake pads to truck tires to water, they will be able to access the system wherever they have basic internet connectivity and put in a request. An operator on the other end of that request will see it in near real-time, instead of the current day and a half refresh rate, and can begin fulfilling the needs of the warfighter almost immediately.

GCSS-MC allows Marines performing maintenance functions to maintain accountability of equipment repairs, parts and personnel, while giving supply personnel greater control over their inventories and enhanced planning capabilities.

GCSS is the foundation on which all modern logistics systems will be built, said Chandler.
