 Navy ERP Enterprise Resource Planning Program
  • Description:

    Navy ERP is an integrated business management capability that modernizes and standardizes Navy business operations, provides unprecedented management visibility across the enterprise, and increases the effectiveness and efficiency of the Navy’s support for the warfighter.

  • Features:

    The Navy ERP solution comprises nine end-to-end business scenarios—named for the first activity to the final activity required to accomplish a financial or program management practice in the scenario. From initial budgeting activities, “Budget to Authorize”, through all the steps required to complete the authorization of expenditures to execute that budget, the Navy ERP solution provides a completely integrated set of processes. The scenarios are:

    • Acquire to Dispose
    • Plan to Perform
    • Plan to Pay (including Consignment and External Purchases)
    • Budget to Authorize
    • Repair to Replenish
    • Plan to Maintain
    • Post to Report
    • Personnel Check In to Check Out
    • Create to Maintain — Master Data

    The integrated processes use a single set of data, automatically disseminates information from one entry to all parts of the process where it will be required, and makes the entire end-to-end information stream visible to managers with responsibility over the processes.

    The result is a business management system that uses and provides data that are consistent and understandable across the organization, and that the manager can report in any format required. Duplicate tasks are eliminated, saving program dollars, and the simplified consistency of the business processes used to complete tasks means fewer training hours, increased skill levels inside the workforce, and more efficient overall operations.

    In addition, Navy ERP:

    • Improves logistics ashore and afloat—increases Fleet Combat Readiness
    • Utilizes end-to-end supply chain integration producing benefits in cycle timereduction, asset visibility, inventory reductions, and readiness
    • Aggressively adopts common, proven, and commercially available business and logistics processes
    • Reduces cost and improves performance of business operations for acquisition, budget, procurement, workforce management, and decision making
    • Results in an aggressive retirement of resource intensive legacy systems
    • Provides near-real-time visibility for decision makers at all levels of critical information on financial status, asset condition, and personnel utilization
    • Is CFO Act compliant and aligns with DoD Business Enterprise Architecture
  • Background:

    Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the generic name of a software-based management system used by forward-thinking corporations around the world to power their crucial business functions. The Navy ERP Program uses a product from SAP Corporation, the largest provider of ERP solutions in the world. The Navy tested portions of the overall ERP suite of applications and processes in four different business management categories: Program Management, Financial Management, Aviation Supply and Regional Maintenance.

    Those tests provided evidence that the commercially available program can be successfully implemented with some adaptations, and that the new processes will provide substantial benefits to the Navy.
