Conducting a Proof of Principle, the U.S. Marine Corps installed four armories with Asset Information Management Solutions (AIMS) Automated Armory®. Instantly time savings were realized as processes that took over 34 hours were reduced to as little as 1 hour. Tracking with a simple single click of a mouse, no longer flipping through paper on a clipboard or in a drawer, gave users confidence of knowing exactly where assets were at any given time. Replacing paper log books immediately provided compliance of even often-violated rules and instructions that gave command visibility and assurance tasks were getting done and correctly. AIMS enhances the visibility across the life cycle of any item(s) desired to be tracked. Providing an enterprise available connection and visibility of the AIMS modules to each other and also external data sources, AIMS is a complete asset and personnel management solution with a semantically-enabled data exchange capability. AIMS consists of a core provider with a vast selection of modules that are built and managed around the effective user-friendly interfaces. This gives the suite of technology to be focused on - what functions you need! Whether you are in an office, a warehouse, on a dock, on the road, in the field, or around the world, the modules easily fit where you need them. AIMS Automated Armory® is an issue and inventory solution that accommodates the issue, reporting, recover, receipt, and maintenance processes for serialized and non-serialized small arms, optics, ammo, and ordnance equipment providing the highest level of standards in accountability. With incorporated technology - e.g. Identification card, Item Unique Identification (IUID), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Digital Signature, and Biometrics - AIMS Automated Armory® ensures accurate and rapid identification of items and authentication of personnel. AIMS Automated Armory® is a scalable solution that is configured to the specific needs and requirements of the user, location, and business rules. Designed to operate in a connected or disconnected environment allows it to be a fully deployable solution.
