Chosen Information System: Army Food Management Information System (AFMIS)
2 out 3 recommended improvements: One recommendation I would attempt to choose to improve AFMIS is to create an advanced search tab on the site. The site is self-explanatory, but all of the different areas are together and if you’re new to AFMIS, it takes you awhile to figure out what tabs you need to use for your section. I would have it where when each section type in their perspective area, only their required tabs will show. For example, if work in Rations, I should be able to search “Rations” and all of my tabs that I need for my specific task cis shown instead of Admin, Field supply, and FMT information that they need.
Another recommendation would be to incorporate an online debit/credit card system. Everyone does not carry cash on them, so when it is time for them to eat, instead of them having to waste half of their lunch break to get cash or go somewhere who accepts card, a credit card system would draw more customers and keep the administration office from having to have excess money and change.
*Must provide and explain 3 improvements to the information system with additional features and functionality.
