Design for Usability
As the system progressed further into the Detail Design and Development phase, the contractor to develop and integrate the system was identified as Northrop Grumman. As a leading global security firm, Northrop Grumman was selected for their proven expertise in the development and integration of innovative information systems in the government and commercial sector. The system was named Global Combat Support System – Army to provide continuity across the branches of the U.S. Military as similar upgrades took place in the Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps.
In consideration of best practices utilized in the commercial sector, the contractor proceeded to utilize the COTS software known as SAP to implement the ERP. SAP ERP is developed by SAP AG, a German software development firm specializing in business operations and recognized as the world’s largest enterprise applications software provider. Used globally and in a wide variety of applications, SAP based ERPs can easily be adapted to various business processes. By utilizing this web-based software system, Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Army could implement a single solution to improve operations across the entire logistics domain (GCSS-A, 2016).
