EPOCH DM selected by AeroVironment to streamline Contract Deliverables Management

Las Vegas, NV – July 1, 2014 – EPOCH DM selected by AeroVironment to streamline Contract Deliverables Management

AeroVironment, a world leader in the design and manufacture of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), has selected CMstat® EPOCH DM Advanced Contract Deliverables Management Suite to automate and streamline its Data Management deliverables process. The Simi Valley site will leverage EPOCH’s ability to manage incoming and outgoing deliverables, as well as internal task management roll-ups.

EPOCH DM is an off the shelf, web-based application developed to the EIA-859 Enterprise Data Management Standard that provides A&D customers the in-depth functionality to manage entire Deliverable Life Cycle – Submission/Receipt tracking and trends, CDRL, SDRL, Internal Task Management, as well as Sub-contractor performance.

EPOCH DM’s Program Management Dashboard gives Managers the ability to quickly view historical performance and trends, as well as future deliverable schedules and status.

Tom Tesmer, CMstat President, said, “Managing contract deliverables is a highly complex process. For a program to be successful, a variety of relationships between internal departments, sub-contractors, prime contractors and customers must be coordinated to ensure quality and timely deliveries, capture award money and avoid penalties.”

CMstat’s standard methodologies provide a fixed price and schedule for each phase of the implementation ensuring rapid deployment and meeting the Contractor’s customer requirement for a production system within 60 days.

As a true COTS application with a robust Administration module providing maximum tailoring, with little or no customization, EPOCH DM easily meets that requirement.
