Women In Defense Logistics on the ground learning about US Space Force operations

LOA has nearly a 40 year tradition of providing professional development and networking opportunities to invigorate, innovate and strengthen our Logistics communities by maximizing opportunities for professional networking, learning and mentorship.

Women In Defense Logistics (WIDL) and Logistics Officer Association (LOA) recently completed a professional development tour where Airmen, Guardians, and over 15 Industry partners could learn more about the mission of the United States Space Force, Space Launch Delta 45, and #Logistics operations required to support the Eastern Range.

LOA’s Chief Operating Officer, Jondavid DuVall, was able to present LOA coins to several Outstanding Airmen, Guardians, and Civilians who have gone above and beyond in the performance of their duties to Logistics Enterprise.

In order to achieve long-term success, DuVall explained why industry must understand what our Airmen and Guardians do every day to keep the mission going. “Supporting organizations like LOA and WIDL, allows leaders another avenue to professionally develop the force and tap into their ingenuity, creativity, and innovative spirit that is needed to move the Logistics Enterprise forward toward Persistent Logistics”, said DuVall.

The Logistics Officer Association Executive Board and Women In Defense Logistics executive panel would like to extend their appreciation to Central Florida / Patrick LOA Chapter, Patrick Space Force Base, and SpaceX for providing Mission Briefs.

Women In Defense Logistics next planned engagement is with Tesseract AF and Air Force Gaming to learn more about how they are changing the game and Accelerating Change.

Department of Defense Successfully Demonstrates a 5G Network for Smart Warehouses

“This prototype is the first progress demonstration in the first round (or ‘Tranche 1’) of 5G projects, a more than $500 million DOD investment in advanced 5G technology that also includes: a second smart warehouse project at Naval Base Coronado in California; a dynamic spectrum-sharing project at Hill Air Force Base in Utah; and an augmented reality / virtual reality training project at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington.”

Excited to hear how the Sustainment Strategic Framework and Tesseract AF is progressing in the weeks to come. Big news on the horizon!

Lt Gen Warren Berry's Advanced Manufacturing Olympics message from AF RSO event -- October 20-23, 2020.

04/30/2021

A team of Airmen at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson had a concern about deploying short notice. They noticed that Airmen were spending a lot of time standing in line at a warehouse waiting on mobility gear, rather than generating sorties.

Capt Jamey Shuls and his teammates at JBER envisioned an app that allows Airmen to fully kit and order their mobility gear before they even show up to the warehouse. This concept, called URSUS, is now a Tesseract pathfinder.

As a strategic partnership with the Air Force Research Lab Information Directorate, the goal of URSUS is to code and field an enhanced user-interface application to connect and co-exist with our legacy #logistics IT systems.

Even now, Airmen across the country are driving readiness forward by testing the prototype and paving the way for an incredible #transformation... only possible because folks like SSgt Meyer and Capt Shuls not only think big, they put #action behind those thoughts to make them become a reality. #LeadBoldly

Based on a treasure trove of data our Foundations project seeks to give leaders tools that help them build a culture of empowerment in their organization by developing psychological safety, increasing feedback, and generating #trust.

Lieutenant General Berry highlighted optimizing manpower and getting after retention in his recent White Paper “An Enterprise View of the Compounding Risk in Sustainment.” He keyed into a 2019 retention survey that highlighted mid-tier enlisted claiming that higher stress, excessive workload, lack of manpower, poor #leadership and negative intra-organizational climates were central to an Airman’s decision to depart the Air Force.

Creating an environment where leaders can build and sustain positive unit #culture and climates is critical to innovation.

Innovation requires inventiveness and a commitment to experiment and test hypotheses.

Along the way, we expect to be misunderstood and welcome the opportunity to bring others along to see the vision we are working toward.

In this sense, when learning is baked into our goals, we can succeed even when projects or pathfinders fail.

Capt Sophia Rizzo

04/27/2021

We collaborate with thousands of Airmen and their IDEAS to address current problems. We align those ideas with the Readiness-SSF. We then graduate a small-number of high-potential ideas to experiment with them as PROJECTS.

Capt Sophia Rizzo

No different from how a jet engine takes in and combusts cold air to produce thrust, we collect problem statements and innovative ideas from Airmen, partner with them, and produce solutions.

Hello Everyone! I'm a logistician in the Army. I'm trying to get a hold of a logistician in the Air Force, if there is any in this page please comment on this post and I'll pm you. Thank you in advance!
Good day everyone! My name is Steven Amaya and I am an MBA student at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently writing my master thesis on Green Logistics Indexes and analysis and I am gathering data on companies actions in making their supply chain environmentally sustainable. I am encouraging all Logistics Managers, Experts, and/or Consultants to partake in my survey! I ask you answer thoroughly and honestly in order to gather precise data. The survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and can be done on mobile or desktop. Thank you again for your time and have a wonderful day! Steven G. Amaya #supplychain #data #logistics Link to the survey:
Asking for advice: Since arriving to my base, I noticed there was no active LOA but plenty of officers and some are showing interest. There was one in the past but it died away a while ago. I want to bring it back to life! Any recommendations on (re-)starting LOA at a base?
Team, I am working on my Master’s thesis, which aims at improving wooden pallet (skid) disposition process for USAF using effective reverse logistics supply chain principles. Your feedback is greatly appreciated as it will help identify potential performance gaps across military organizations. Your personal information and responses will be kept secured and anonymous. Please take out 5 mins of your valuable time to complete this 9 question survey, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YZCSQ5Q Thank you in advance! Respectfully, Himanshu Chopra
Loggies, You may have heard me say that "I stand on the shoulders of giants." MGen Harris was one of those giants. I met Gen Harris when I was a Lt attending SAC Maintenance University on a field trip to Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center. I didn't realize her significance in Air Force history then. I attended her funeral today and joined many others in saying goodbye to a true pioneer. Team Dover Mission Generators under the leadership of Cols Tyler Schaff and Chris May supported a C-17 fly-by in Gen Harris' honor. May she rest in peace....
Thanks to LOA for a great Symposium! I know from personal experience how much work goes into putting an event like this on. Great to see the energy of the young loggies out there. Again, thanks!
Dialed into the LOA and AOA Presidents telecon today. What all stars. LOA’s local chapters are where the rubber meets the road and my hats off to the leadership that bring it all together. Such amazing things happening within your chapters ! Thank you for all you do !
Congratulations to the 341st Maintenance Group, 341st Missile Wing for winning the 2017 Phoenix Award. They are the best of the best field maintenance unit in the Department of Defense!
