Army Readiness - Common Operating Picture

Thursday, June 28, 2018

What is it?

The Army Readiness-Common Operating Picture (AR-COP) is a web-based, information and mission command enabling sustainment tool. AR-COP was formerly known as the Materiel - Common Operating Picture (M-COP) and was developed and sustained by Army Materiel Command's Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA).

The AR-COP establishes a decision analytics and business intelligence foundation for the predictive analytics and decision support capabilities for the future. AR-COP provides commanders at every echelon, both at home station and deployed, a tailorable, integrated readiness common operating picture for use across the full spectrum of operations.

What has the Army done / is doing?

The AR-COP taps into the powerful business intelligence capabilities resident within the Army Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems such as Global Combat Service Support -- Army, Logistics Modernization Program, and General Fund Enterprise Business System. It integrates and visualizes relevant readiness information into a single source dashboard with near real-time combat power and logistics statuses that can be continually up-dated. The initial operating capability was developed and implemented in June 2018.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned for the future?

The AR-COP is set to release additional functional improvements every 60-90 days starting with the first scheduled release in August 2018. The AR-COP will continue to leverage capabilities resident within the evolving ERP Family of Systems and the AR-COP capability will move towards providing actionable near real-time information.

Why is this important to the Army?

The AR-COP delivers commanders a data-driven analytical decision making capability at all levels of the Army. It will increase lethality and readiness with a fully integrated dashboard for all of the warfighting functions through the Army's emerging Mission Command Common Operating Environment(MC COE).
