By helping the Coast Guard better manage configuration, maintenance, supply chain and technical data for its assets, Coast Guard Logistics Information Management System increases asset availability and operational effectiveness while decreasing costs.
CG-LIMS uses commercial off-the-shelf tools to incrementally replace legacy logistics systems and interface with financial and other information systems. CG-LIMS will be an important tool to support the Coast Guard’s logistics business model, including:
- Configuration management
- Total asset visibility
- Bi-level maintenance
