PEO Soldier's Rapid Fielding Initiative (RFI) office, from the director to each member of each fielding team, follows this principle as it seeks to improve its services to Soldiers.
In response to this message from Soldiers, RFI's deputy director, and Lean Fielding Project sponsor, created an LSS team to identify the underlying problem that was causing redundancies in equipping Soldiers, especially with recoverable items.
The LSS team used tools, such as process mapping, SIPOC (suppliers, inputs, process, outputs, customers), value stream mapping, and cause-and-effect analysis, to narrow the potential contributors to the root cause, since the fixed, automated template no longer met the fielding requirements for some deploying Soldiers.
In support of the Department of the Army's accelerated priority fielding to the 82nd Airborne Division for the DVE system and the division's operational requirement for thermal night vision driving capability, PM FLIR fielded DVE systems to all Improved Target Acquisition Systems companies within the division's infantry battalions.
As part of the fielding, PM FLIR's new equipment training team provided soldiers with hands-on, train-the-trainer-level instructions on complete operations and maintenance of the DVE system, including driver's training.
