HMP Inventory Presentation for 4-month Review [ppt]

  1. 1. WBS 2.3 HMP Inventory Erica Gralla Sarah Shull September 8-9, 2005, Interplanetary Supply Chain Management and Logistics Architectures Interplanetary Supply Chain Management & Logistics Architectures 2005-2007 MIT JPL USA PSI
  2. 2. Background <ul><li>Challenges for HMP Logistics </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organized last-minute </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ever-changing schedules (weather, flights, funding) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Items left on base over the winter are not tracked carefully </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Inventory Goals <ul><li>Our Goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide an inventory of items and implement a tracking system for items during the field season and over the winter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Catalog classes and sub-classes of supply in the field to obtain a complete inventory and relational database of a Mars-analog research base on Earth </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Inventory Procedures <ul><li>Inventoried the following locations: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bathroom Tents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MIT Tent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Office Tent (inc. Medical Supplies) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research Tent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Core Tent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mess Tent (inc. food) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Greenhouse </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Comm/Systems Tent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Humvee </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Outdoor Camp Equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tagged items with RFID and barcodes </li></ul>HMP Research Station Layout MESS Office Tent Life Sciences + Medical Ops CORE MARS-1 HUMVEE ROVER Main Entrance Ramp Systems Tent (Comms, Computing) MIT Tent l--------l 3 m Existing Research Tent Future Elements CSA Greenhouse ATV
  5. 5. <ul><li>Tabs for various inventory collections (e.g. food, mess tent, medical) </li></ul>Excel Inventory Spreadsheet
  6. 6. Results <ul><li>Outcomes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>>2300 items were cataloged in an excel spreadsheet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>~400 of these added to the relational database on-site for RFID tracking (MIT tent, Mess tent) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Listed the following attributes for each item: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Supply Class </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Name, Description </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Priority Level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hazard Type, Hazard Level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Perishability Type, Perishability Units, Perishable Parameter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Usage Rate Type, Usage Rate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Origin Type, Owner, Storage Environment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Packaging, Handling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mass Units Type, Mass, Size Units Type, Volume </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost/Value, Number of Items </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Location, Case ID, and Electronic Product Code (EPC)/Barcode. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Example Use Cases <ul><li>How many items in each supply class? </li></ul><ul><li>What percent of camp equipment is owned by each participating organization? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the fuel availability on base, and where is it located? </li></ul>
  8. 8. Inventory by Supply Class Food Comm Science Health
  9. 9. Inventory by Owner HMP CSA SFU MIT
  10. 10. Example On-Site Analysis - Fuel
  11. 11. Mars Analog <ul><li>How analogous is HMP to Martian and Lunar bases, in terms of logistics? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Obvious differences include: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>HMP uses in-situ water resources </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>More frequent flights (resupply) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Relative ‘luxury’ in cooking/eating arrangements </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Compare estimates based on Draper/MIT CER surface demand models </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Comparison to CER-based Estimates <ul><li>HMP waste collection system is simple, and depends largely on trash bags </li></ul><ul><li>HMP has several seasons’ worth of food stockpiled, and a wide variety of kitchen equipment (accumulated over many seasons) </li></ul>
  13. 13. Summary <ul><li>Established a near-complete inventory of HMP base camp </li></ul><ul><li>Validated the supply classes for Moon/Mars exploration </li></ul><ul><li>Provided usable baseline for planning upcoming 2006 field season </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. cook knows what food and supplies are on-base </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Populated relational database to enable RFID tracking </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. “how much printer paper is in the MIT tent?” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Developed procedures for full-scale inventory and tracking of all supplies on an Arctic, Lunar or Martian base </li></ul>
