Industrial Hygiene
IH Metrics 
Industrial hygiene metrics are extracted from DOEHRS-IH data and feed two separate Army metrics systems:
     AMEDD Command Management System (CMS)
    1. Provides feedback on performance of MEDCOM operations.
    2. Helps MEDCOM leadership address non-“green” operational issues.
     Army Installation Status Report
    1. Is required by AR 210-14.
    2. Has the same end purpose as AMEDD CMS, but includes all operations within an installation.
