Naval Material Supply Chain Management (SCM) is NAVSUP's largest Product & Service in terms of resources invested with over 3,000 civilian, military and contractor personnel involved, $43 billion of inventory on hand and an annual material budget of over $6.6 billion. It covers the over 430,000 class IX repair part line items of supply for which the NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support (NAVSUP WSS) is responsible. NAVSUP WSS uses funds from the NWCF (Navy Working Capital Fund) to buy and repair the parts and in turn sells them to Fleet customers. In a nutshell, Naval SCM is the collection of processes that result in Navy customers receiving the parts they need, when and where they need them, anywhere in the world.
In delivering Naval Material SCM, NAVSUP WSS has a dual focus, both on its more familiar Fleet Supply Support role, but also on its Program Support role, in order to provide support for the life cycle of the weapons system. The supply support role is more familiar because it is NAVSUP WSS's more visible &customer focus& role... the planning and execution of material support on a day to day basis. In addition, because NAVSUP WSS is weapons system-focused, its program support role is less obvious to the customer… they don’t see the processes and outputs directly, but they are critical nonetheless to achieving weapons system readiness. Below are some of the major Fleet Supply Support and Program Support processes NAVSUP WSS performs to execute Naval Material SCM.
The vast majority of the Naval Material SCM effort is provided by NAVSUP WSS at its two Pennsylvania locations. NAVSUP WSS Philadelphia provides support for Naval aviation weapons systems while the Mechanicsburg site supports ships, submarines and nuclear propulsion.
