WSIT provides access to information about weapon systems and specifications associated with (National Stock Numbers) NSNs. The system helps to group parts influenced by a specification and evaluate the impact of specification changes on weapon systems.
WSIT is a powerful tool that can provide valuable insight to those who manage the life cycle of today's complex weapon systems. This tool gathers information about weapon systems and their specifications from multiple data sources, such as cataloging data and procurement history files.
With WSIT's query features, users can explore the relationships between specifications and weapons systems. For example, a user can estimate the impact on a weapon system if a specification is changed or canceled, or if a manufacturer no longer supplies a part that supports the weapon system.
If a part conforming to a specification fails its testing requirements, WSIT will show other items on the weapon system were tested using that specification. In addition, WSIT will be able to identify what other weapon systems could possibly be affected by the failed part.
WSIT can be used to generate a list of weapon systems in which a specified document-military specification, federal specification, commercial item description, or non-government standard-is called out. And, it can also provide a list of the national stock numbers and controlling part numbers referenced in that document.
