Abstract : Item Type Storage Codes (ITSCs) are developed by the Army Master Data File (AMDF) originators for utilization by storage activities in determining mandatory storage requirements. This project determined that the criteria used to assign ITSCs are not adequate for proper utilization at storage activities. Additionally, it was determined that development of ITSCs should be mandatory, ITSCs should be easily accessible at time of receipt, and the Required Storage and Type Space Incompatibility Listing is of no value to the depots using the current logic. This project addresses only ITSCs for general supply items and hazardous commodities.
