Abstract
"The goal of this SBIR project is to develop and deploy a MaterialIdentification and Procurement System (MIDAPS). MIDAPSfacilitates information-integrated synchronization ofconstruction activities with materials management functionsthrough a rapidly re-configurable, centralized relationaldatabase management system. MIDAPS facilitates both new shipconstruction and repair jobs. MIDAPS will provide materialidentification, procurement, material statusing, and decisionsupport for the various stages in the life cycle of materials inthe ship building industry. MIDAPS will be applicable to smalland medium level shipyards. The most significant innovation ofthe MIDAPS concept is the development of a materials system thatbecomes a real time management decision tool rather than a quasi-static information statusing tool.BENEFITS: MIDAPS benefits include (a) significant reductions in ship construction and repair cycle time and cost, and (b) substantial gains in ship throughput and capacity. The proposed open-architecture, customizablesoftware approach will produce accelerated and affordable deployment of the technology to the U.S. shipbuilding community."
