DSS Materiel Tracker - Distribution Standard System

Common Access Card required

DSS Materiel Tracker Information

DSS is an automated information system that manages all functional business processes of DLA’s warehouse operations. These processes include receiving, storage, consolidation, packing, shipping, inventory, inspection and workload management. The system includes both commercial-off-the-shelf software packages and developed application software.

DSS Materiel Tracker is a distribution tool that allows customers to track their Materiel Requisitions Order status using information from the Distribution Standard System.

Computer Access to DSS Inquiry Screens

Access to DSS will allow the customer to inquire shipment status, review carrier manifest, check for multi-pack, determine who the carrier is, check for stock, review the NSN history, check receipts, check MRO history, check CCP receipts, shipments and history, etc.

Requesting DSS access

Every individual who wishes to access DSS will have to submit a new System Access Authorization Request (SAAR) through AMPS . In AMPS they will be requesting the Role Based Access Controls (RBAC) User Role needed to perform their job.

DDC is a member of the Information Operations Panel (IOP) initiative and has established policies and procedures for DSS changes which encompass the nine steps of the DLA Collaborative Configuration Management Plan (CI#: DLA-CCMP-Version 2.0).

DDC DSS CM Plan presents a methodology by which Configuration Management (CM) is maintained throughout the development life cycle for Distribution Standard System.

DDC contributes to the Collaborative effort by posting all IT initiatives that might interest other agencies to the Collaborative CM Web page.
