UAH OOE Shares Supply Chain Mapping Best Practices

Denver, CO

June 13, 2017

UAH OOE is currently working with the Alabama Military Stability Foundation to map the defense industrial base across Alabama, identify companies that are heavily depending on defense funding and provide services to strengthen those companies.  Similar efforts are underway in many other states with support from the Department of Defense Office for Economic Adjustment.  As part of the Alabama Defense Industry Diversification Analysis Project, OOE staff participated in a Learning Community in Denver Colorado in June to share best practices in supply chain and industrial base mapping.  Leveraging UAH’s vast experience with the Department of Defense community, the Alabama team was able to share effective and efficient practices to map supply chains with other teams from across the country.  Participants from 14 other states benefited from the workshop.

“Leveraging their vast experience with the Department of Defense community, the Alabama team was able to share effective and efficient practices to map supply chains.”
