RAYTHEON CONTINUES TO REPLACE DOD WAREHOUSING WITH IT SOLUTION.

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a one-year contract extension to continue the full supply chain management of spare parts at Anniston Army Depot, Ala., and Red River Army Depot, Texas. The $9.3 million contract was awarded by the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia and will extend the period of performance through January 2003.

Raytheon will continue to provide full inventory management services directly to the depots for pre-expended bins and rotation stock using its Real Time Logistics(SM) (RTL) system. RTL(SM) is a web-based, "just-in-time" logistics management system that reduces material investment, allows for order optimization, and improves supply availability.

"RTL exploits technology to manage inventory more efficiently through the use of precision information, while improving response and delivery time," explained John Carroll, Raytheon's director of Enterprise Information Systems (EIS).

Since 2000, the depots have achieved substantial operational improvements and savings in material expenses through lower procurement cost and reduced inventory levels. Major weapon systems currently being supported at Anniston include the M1A1 Abrams main battle tank, M88 Retriever, and M9 Armored Combat Earthmover. Major weapon systems being supported at Red River include the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, Multiple Launch Rocket System, Small Excavation Equipment, and the 25-Ton Crane.

In addition to the U.S. Army depot contracts at Anniston and Red River, Raytheon EIS also has Industrial Prime Vendor contracts at Naval Aviation Depots in North Island, Calif., and Cherry Point, N.C. At these sites, Raytheon manages more than 60,000 National Stock Numbers and 100,000 bins with a parts availability rate of 99.5 percent.
