    Logistic system closed down by Air Force

    CSC was simply not up to the task of adapting commercial Oracle software to fulfill the many specialized tasks the system was supposed to perform, said Johnson and Robert Shofner, the Air Force’s program executive officer for business and enterprise systems.

    The project became plagued with technical glitches and delays.

    “It was a lot of problems,” Johnson said in the Air Force’s first public discussion of what caused the Air Force to cancel ECSS.

    The system had once been touted as revolutionizing the management of parts and equipment. The ECSS’ success was a critical component in the Defense Department’s strategy for meeting a congressional deadline for having audit-worthy books by 2017.
