Enterprise Supply Chain Analysis, Planning & Execution (ESCAPE)
The Enterprise Supply Chain Analysis, Planning and Execution (ESCAPE) program is one of the first Commercial off the shelf (COTS) solutions able to address the Air Force’s complex supply chain spares planning and scheduling needs. ESCAPE deploys PTC’s Service Parts Management (SPM) application as Software as a Service (SaaS) – widely considered to be a “best of breed” commercial supply chain planning toolset. PTC’s SPM is the only enterprise integrated solution consisting of planning, forecasting, and Readiness Based Sparing (RBS) optimization in one enterprise platform that is purpose-built for Aerospace & Defense. ESCAPE will provide a modernized, integrated solution for Air Force supply planners resulting in more accurate and timely parts procurements and allocation across the Air Force enterprise. The outcome will not only be cost savings in the USAF’s parts budget, but improved mission readiness of USAF’s air fleet. DSD Labs has been the prime for the ESCAPE contract since early 2017.
