Abstract
TECHNICAL AND MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL AT NASA'S KENNEDY SPACE CENTER OF NASA NEED AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS (OMI) ASSOCIATED WITH SHUTTLE TRANSPORT SYSTEM (STS) GROUND PROCESSING. CURRENTLY, OMIS ARE GENERATED, USED, AND MAINTAINED LARGELY THROUGH A PAPER-DRIVEN PROCESS. AN INNOVATIVE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED THAT IS CAPABLE OF: INGESTING EXISTING OMI TEXT AND RELATED DATA INTO AN INDEXED ARCHIVE OF OMIS; QUICKLY RETRIEVING OMIS AND DISPLAYING INFORMATION TAILORED TO VARIOUS CLASSES OF USERS; AND ACCEPTING ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE INPUT AND VERIFICATION OF DELIVERED OMI TASKS. SUCH A SYSTEM WILL INTEGRATE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES, DATABASE MANAGEMENT, AND HYPER-MEDIA. THE EXPECTED BENEFITS TO NASA ARE REDUCED PAPER USE, INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY OF TECHNICAL PERSONNEL, AND GREATER ASSURANCE TO MANAGEMENT THAT OPERATIONAL AND MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES ARE PROPERLY EXECUTED AND SEQUENCED.
