Lead materiel integrator decision support tool released by logistics support activity.

The Army Materiel Command's Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) released the Lead Materiel Integrator (LMI) Decision Support Tool (DST) on 15 December 2011. LMI DST contains a powerful sourcing engine that compares the Army's resources with its validated and prioritized requirements. The tool helps leaders make decisions about materiel distribution and redistribution within their units and agencies and provides guidance based on current Army policies and directives.

The initial software release and the designation of the Army Sustainment Command as the Army's LMI on 15 February 2012 change the way the service executes materiel distribution by shifting the management of equipment to a collaborative, web-based environment emphasizing transparency and efficiency.

LOGSA plans to improve LMI DST every 6 months until it becomes fully functional in June 2013.

A future release will track each approved action from initiation to fulfillment.
