FIRE / EMERGENCY SERVICES
Fire Departments and Emergency Services reduce logistics expenses with WISE
Manage the flow of food for city, county, state or federal detention facilities
WISE WMS facilitates the tracking and tracing items that require detailed reporting for governance and to accurately report activity by individual fire station or supporting locations, and by each employee for both inventory and assets. This responsibility is traditionally assumed by the agency financial systems, but financial systems are cumbersome to produce up to the minute data and information for decision making and the level of accuracy is usually only reliable to the last physical inventory.

Royal 4: Success Stories
The City of Long Beach Gas and Oil Department
The City’s Gas and Oil Department (LBGO) consists of three significant enterprise operations;
1) A municipally owned gas utility that is the fifth largest in the United States, supporting 142,000 customer accounts and maintaining 1,900 miles of pipeline;
2) The Southeast Resource Recovery Facility (SERRF) creating electricity from trash, recycling about 485,000 tons of solid waste in fiscal year 2012; and;
3) The only city-managed oil production operation in California, producing about 12 million barrels annually with no major incident in 75 years of continued operation.
The LBGO warehouse primarily supports LBGO’s natural gas operations and specifically the Engineering and Construction as well as Customer Service bureaus. In 2011, the Engineering and Construction Bureau designed and implemented approximately 80,000 feet of new main pipeline. Of that, approximately 41,000 was removed from the system. The LBGO warehouse provides a variety of services in support of LBGO operations. The services provided are:
- Procurement of materials, supplies and assets in support of the Engineering & Construction and Gas Service Bureau.
- Supply chain includes items stocked in the warehouse and delivered or picked up by requesting bureaus as ordered
- Specialty items (non-stock) received by the warehouse and/or delivered directly to a job site or the ordering bureau
- Central receiving, temporary storage, deliver and pick up location for LBGO procured materials, supplies and assets
- Provision of temporary storage and distribution of goods purchased by individual bureaus with LBGO.
The LBGO Warehouse Management System and its related business processes are integrated to become part of the LBGO and City of Long Beach supply chain, which refers to all the processes involved with the city’s purchasing and financial management systems.

LAX – Los Angeles International Airport
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the sixth busiest airport in the world and third busiest in the United States, and ranks 13th in the world in the amount of air cargo handled. LAX is part of a system of three Southern California airports – along with LA/Ontario International and Van Nuys general aviation – that are owned and operated by Los Angeles World Airports. In 2012, LAX served nearly 63.7 million passengers, processed over 1.9 million tons of air cargo valued at over $86.9 billion, and handled 605,480 aircraft operations (landings and takeoffs).
The central complex features nine passenger terminals connected by a U-shaped two-level roadway. Brand-name and ethnic-styled restaurants, cocktail lounges, gift shops, newsstands, duty free shops for international flights, restrooms, public telephones and business centers offer convenient services for the traveling public. The central warehouse facility is approximately 20,000 square feet, with total stock SKU’s of 2,500 items.
Inventory and logistics operations at Los Angeles World Airports are similar to a retail distribution system where materials, supplies, and assets are ordered from the central facility and distributed to the users in the maintenance of the terminal concourses on behalf of the airlines. Los Angeles World Airports required a system that would improve wall to wall results and bring them to industry standards. Their selection criteria was to have automated support that was simple to use, not complicated to install, and interfaced to their existing SAP ERP.
Success at Los Angeles World Airports was gauged by year end progress in inventory accuracy and the reduction in adjustments. The use of stock item aliases has greatly improved the range of capabilities when using multiple part or id numbers in handling commodity type inventory items.
Los Angeles World Airports opted to deploy a solution in a phased approach to begin the process of moving key metrics to acceptable ranges and perfecting the interface to the financial systems of record, in this case SAP. In addition to purchasing for inventory, many supplies are purchased in support of projects.
