    The following two DIDs have been cancelled but replacement no available. Are you aware when they were cancelled, why and potential replacement DIDs? DI-ALSS-81529 & DI-ALSS-81530 Any information would be greatly appreciated.


    Answer

    According to ASSIST, the old DI-ALSS-81529 (Logistics Management Information (LMI) Data Product ) http://quicksearch.dla.mil/basic_profile.cfm?ident_number=205495&method=basic and DI-ALSS-81530 (Logistics Management Information (LMI) Summaries) http://quicksearch.dla.mil/basic_profile.cfm?ident_number=205496&method=basic DIDs are officially cancelled.   

    According to US Army Materiel Command Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA), these two DIDs were directly related to, and cite authority from the now-cancelled MIL-PRF-49506 LMI (which was cancelled in March 2011). Both were artifacts left over from that former MIL-PRF, and were past due for cancellation.  They had been left in place for a brief period until all the services concurred with cancellation, and were formally cancelled in July 2013, two years after the MIL-PRF-49506 was cancelled.  

    TechAmerica Standard, GEIA-STD-0007, Logistics Product Data superseded MIL-PRF-49506. See http://quicksearch.dla.mil/basic_profile.cfm?ident_number=123615&method=basic for additional information. In addition, the new MIL-HDBK-502A Product Support Analysis was issued in March 2013 (available at http://quicksearch.dla.mil/basic_profile.cfm?ident_number=201462&method=basic) and also serves as a key reference in this area. According to LOGSA, the cancelled artifact DIDs are not cited in MIL-HDBK-502A.  The current DIDs are cited in the updated MIL-HDBK-502A. 

    The current standard for Logistics Product Data (LPD) is GEIA-STD-0007 (Adopted by DoD in Oct 2008).  The two DIDs that support 0007 are: DI-SESS-81758 Logistics Product Data and DI-SESS-81759 Logistics Summaries, these DIDs have been in place since July of 2008.  It is important to note that 502A is focused primarily on the use and implementation of TA-STD-0017 Product Support Analysis, which generates the LPD that these two DIDs support. 

    For additional guidance on how to use these DIDs to acquire LPD please refer to GEIA-HB-0007 Handbook for Logistics Product Data.
