Noventus Pty Ltd Announces Successful delivery to Defence’s Warehouse Management System (WMS) Stock on Hand Reconciliation Tool

Noventus Pty Ltd of Melbourne Australia has successfully developed and delivered Business Intelligence (BI) capability to the Australian Department of Defence. This capability will assist Defence to effectively reconcile inconsistencies in stock holdings between the new SAP based ‘Warehouse Management System’ (WMS) and Defence’s legacy ‘Military Integrated Logistics Information System’ (MILIS). The web tool was developed as part of the WMS rollout program implemented in the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Data Warehouse (CAS DW).

The web tool operates on CIOG infrastructure and ingests both MILIS and WMS data along with identified business level errors (BLEs) from the MILIS/WMS interface. This web tool delivers summary and detailed online dashboard reporting, commentary for historical reference on errors implemented on Defence’s enterprise COGNOS capability. Specifically, the tool provides the following capabilities:

  • Modern, commercial grade Web interface with menu system navigation;
  • Summary and detailed reports per warehouse;
  • Drill-through with details, status and history;
  • Discrepancies between MILIS and WMS stock on hand;
  • Captures business level errors and related to the DeBi MILIS/WMS interface; and
  • Includes functionality to ‘write back’ commentary on the discrepancy, the user details for a historical perspective.

The web tool is one of several BI Data Warehouse based projects being undertaken by the Noventus team leveraging the CAS DW infrastructure.

Noventus’ Managing Director Keith Armstrong commented:

 It is very exciting to be developing specific Business Intelligence capability for Defence.  Our ability to develop bespoke systems integration and software solutions utilising Defence’s existing enterprise tools, and to use these to solve complex problems using the Data Warehouse represents real growth for Noventus. More importantly, our Laverton based team is closely aligned to our customers and their insight is adding significant value for Defence.”
