Abstract
FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS IN AMMUNITION PACKAGING DESIGN. EXPERT SYSTEMS WOULD BE USED BY A DESIGNER INDEPENDENTLY OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH A COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN SYSTEM. THE EXPERT SYSTEM WOULD BE PC BASED, MENU-DRIVEN, AND USER INTERACTIVE. THROUGH A SERIES OF QUESTIONS, THE SYSTEM WOULD SOLICIT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT A PRODUCT WILL BE SHIFTED, STORED, AND HANDLED IN. BASED ON THIS INFORMATION AND THE PRODUCT'S CHARACTERISTICS, THE EXPERT SYSTEM AIDS IN DETERMINING PACKAGING REQUIREMENTS. PACKAGING REQUIREMENTS COULD RELATE TO MARKINGS, COSTS, CLIMATE, VIBRATION, COMPRESSION, SHOCK, NUCLEAR/BIOLOGIC CHEMICAL (NBC) ENVIRONMENT, ELECTRO-STATIC DISCHARGE, ETC. BASED ON PACKAGING REQUIREMENTS THE SYSTEM WOULD SEEK ADDITIONAL INFORMATION RELATING TO A SPECIFIC REQUIREMENT TOPIC, UTILIZE INTERNAL DATA BASES, AND RECOMMEND DESIGN APPROACHES. MODULES COULD DEAL WITH JACKET REQUIREMENTS, CUSHION REQUIREMENTS, MARKETING/LABELING REQUIREMENTS, OR OTHER TOPICS AS REQUIRED. THE LEVEL OF PROTECTION, MATERIAL/DESIGN OPTIONS, COSTS, AND THE REASONS FOR THE RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE PRESENTED. DURING PHASE I AN OVERALL EXPERT SYSTEM DESIGN, PHASE II IMPLEMENTATION COST/BENEFITS AND A PROTOTYPE TYPE EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE PROTOTYPE WILL DEAL WITH ONE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENT TOPIC (SHOCK, VIBRATION, CLIMATE, ETC.).
