Engineering Management Applications of Computers and Data Processing( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As computer technology and all that it encompasses have expanded through the years, several areas of specialization have appeared. From a user's viewpoint, some of these specialties are: computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing, computer aided instruction, and document processing systems. Very fundamentally, the computer which serves as the basis for these specialties remains the same. The commands given to the computer, the functions it carries out, and the output it provides are tailored to the needs of various user groups. However, specialization has resulted in 'polarizing' of the users. This paper briefly explores areas of computer applications and relates examples which the authors see as obstacles to an integrated ADP system. A survey of computer systems planning and design is presented from the organizational perspective. The paper offers a summary of general issues of software applications, and concludes with views on training as part of the overall computer system implementation process in a large, specialized organization
Computer Aided Logistics Support - A Program Overview( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Computer Aided Logistics Support (CALS) Program is a challenging DoD-wide initiative to achieve major improvements in supportable weapons system designs and logistic technical information. These improvements will result from a transitioning away from a paper-intensive weapon system support process to a largely automated and integrated operation with substantial implementation of CALS by 1990. This paper presents a description of the CALS Program, from top level DoD objectives to 'desk-top' CALS software for use in NAVSEA. Discussed in this paper are both management and technical issues of this interservices program; methods and approaches for integrating logistics and technical data requirements into the design and engineering process; proposals for re-defining and streamlining data requirements and acquisition to maximize use of automated technologies; and transferring technical and logistics information in digital form. Current computer demonstration projects and candidate CALS software are described
