1. DLMS Course Description:
This training provides basic awareness and broad-spectrum knowledge of Defense Logistics Management Standards (DLMS). DLMS are a broad base of business rules designed to meet DoD's requirements for logistics support. The DLMS are developed in collaboration with the Military Departments, Defense Agencies, and participating Federal Agencies to accommodate the old DoD-unique logistics data exchange standards and processes commonly referred to as the "MILS" (Military Standard), plus new information exchange requirements supporting modernization. DLMS transactional exchanges are founded in American National Standards Institute (ANSI) chartered Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12 commercial standards and support other emerging electronic business (EB) technologies, such as eXtensible Markup Language (XML). The training provides an introduction to electronic data interchange (EDI) as applied under the DLMS and includes an introduction to commercial EDI, DLMS background and concept, DLMS implementation strategy/planning, and an overview of understanding of DLMS-specific EDI. This training is of particular value to functional and technical subject matter experts involved with the migration from the legacy 80 record position formats supporting MILSTRIP, MILSTRAP, MILSBILLS business processes.
