Presentation Title: More Bang for Your Buck: Using APEX to Analyse & Improve Defence Logistics
Speaker: Mr Rod West
Company: Techmodal
Co-presenter: Tom Blackwell - Techmodal
Presentation abstract: With only 3 months to design, build and test a tool that could model the deployment of the UK’s armed forces Techmodal chose to bring together standard Oracle APEX components and custom developed components to produce a versatile modelling tool. A highly configurable tool was required which could take data from a wide range of data sources, bring the data into a coherent model, visualise the results and allow the user to do what-if analysis.

This session demonstrates the tool showing how the user can model a full scale deployment of UK armed forces to a foreign theatre and looks under the hood at how APEX was extended. Topics covered include:

- using JSON to provide the compelling graphical representation of the supply channels

- how the data is filtered and kept secure using database contexts

- how dynamic SQL models the complex rules that govern the demand and supply of equipment

- how custom dashboards are used to give a graphical insight into the key costs and stock levels
