Army Marks Success of Vehicle Management System

Thursday, March 5, 2009

Sierra Army Depot (SIAD) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the success of an innovative wireless industrial Vehicle Management System (VMS) from I.D. Systems, Inc.

The system-referred to by SIAD as the Centralized Fleet Automated Management System (CFAMS)-was implemented under a Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) program, with the goals of:

  • reducing industrial vehicle maintenance costs,
  • improving fleet mission readiness,
  • increasing material handling productivity and the consequential velocity of critical war-fighter supplies,
  • and improving worker safety.

"We consider CFAMS one of our marquee CTMA projects, with a projected benefit across the DoD measured in the tens of millions of dollars," said Greg Kilchenstein, of the Office of the Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Maintenance Policy and Programs.
