Information : Intranet Site
With the implementation of web technology, members of the Maintenance and Logistics Command-Pacific community who need information on a host of different topics, ranging from planned meetings and overhauls to how to procure diesel fuel, can find the answers on its new Intranet site.
The Maintenance and Logistics Command-Pacific (MLCPAC) developed, designed, and organized an Intranet Site that supported its mission requirements. The website provides information sharing with select Commands, aligns with the Maintenance and Logistics Command-Atlantic initiative, and allows for an open architecture for future expansion. By effectively implementing web technology, MLCPAC provides a host of vital information to those members in the Coast Guard community who need it the most.
The website’s layout has a left/right frame construction. The left frame provides a search capability and nine general site overview headings, and the right frame is devoted to content information. At the top of the left frame, there is a search box where a customer can type in a word and a search routine will search the contents of the website and return all occurrences of that word or topic in the database in the right frame. Below the search box are nine general site overview topics. By clicking on any of these topics, further topics are revealed below (drop-down) the main topic. This drop-down capability is a good way to contain and group information within a table-of-contents-like list. When any of the revealed left frame topics are clicked-on, the expanded version appears in the right frame.
The right frame provides an area showing an amplified version of the topics listed in the left frame. The main layout of the material presented in the right frame is highlighted at the top with bulleted information below. The bulleted information is hyperlinked text that allows the user to link to further amplifying information.
MLCPAC’s Intranet website provides nine general information categories. The first general topic addresses general command overviews such as mission and vision statements, organizational charts, scheduled meetings and briefs, and strategies and metrics. The other eight main topics address Information Resource Management, useful links, platform support, procurement, Standard Operating Procedures, technical resources, and Naval Engineering Support Units (NESUs). With the development and continued evolution of the Intranet Site, vital information needed by the Coast Guard community can be easily accessed and used to support its vital mission. Other accessible information includes Long Range Maintenance Plans (LRMPs), Configuration Management (CM) data, Naval Engineering Project Listings, scheduled maintenance activities, Cutter Information Management System, procurement procedures, and essential topics needed by the entire Coast Guard community.
