|In August 2006 the Joint Aeronautical Logistics Commanders (JALC) sponsored the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), to develop a Joint Deficiency Reporting System (JDRS) based on NAVAIR’s NAMDRP application.
JDRS provides a common, seamless solution for deficiency reporting and resolution management across the Aeronautical Enterprise. JDRS is a cross-service web enabled automated tracking system designed to initiate, process and track deficiency reports from the Warfighter through the investigation process.
JDRS is being developed by NAVAIR’s NAMDRP/JDRS development team located at NAS Patuxent River comprised of senior programmers, functional requirement experts, application testers, and various program support personnel.
Working along side the JDRS development team are JDRS support teams from the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA).
|Currently NAMDRP serves over 9,400 users averaging 225 transactions per day and 4.5 Million hits per year. NAMDRP is so widely used it has even been recognized by FedEx as one of their top ten customers for international shipments. With the addition of Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, DCMA and other agencies, JDRS will support over 20,000 users processing 50,000 plus deficiency reports annually, making it one of the most robust joint service web applications ever developed.
JDRS Deficiency Reports Includes: Product Quality Deficiency Reports (PQDRs); Engineering Investigations (EIs); Material Deficiency Reports (MDRs); Acceptance Inspection Deficiency Reports (AIDRs); Hazardous Material Reports (HMRs); and Technical Publication Deficiency Reports (TPDRs) being added in the near future. JDRS is scheduled to launch in spring 2008.
