Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE A DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR CONTRACTOR DELIVERABLES AS A TOOL WHICH ASSISTS IN PROVIDING AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO SYSTEM MANAGEMENT. THE SYSTEM CONCEPT IS A DERIVATIVE OF WORK ACCOMPLISHED BY SYNCHRONETICS FOR THE WRDC MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORATE FOR AN ENGLISH TEXT SEARCH SYSTEM DEMONSTRATED ON SBIR CONTRACT F33615-89-C-5734. THE BASIC CONCEPT IS TO PROVIDE THE MEANS FOR USER TO DO A COMPUTER SEARCH, INFORMATION EXTRACTION TASK, OR "ELECTRONIC CUT AND PASTE" OPERATIONS OVER DIGITALLY STORED CONTRACTOR DELIVERABVLE DOCUMENTS. IN PARTICUALR DOCUMENTS GENERATED ACCORDING TO INTEGRATED COMPUTER AIDED MANUFACTURING (ICAM) STANDARDS AS SPECIFIED BY THE "ICAM DOCUMENTATION STANDARDS", AIR FORCE (WRDC) REPORT NO. IDS150120000C, WILL BE ADDRESSED. THE COMPUTER SEARCH ALGORITHM TO BE USED IS BASED ON A VERY ROBUST AND PORTABLE IMPLEMENTATION OF NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING (NLP) TECHNOLOGY, A BRANCH OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) THAT DEALS WITH THE COMPUTER UNDERSTANDING OF NATURAL (I.E. ENGLISH) LANGUAGES RATHER THAN FORMAL (I.E., COBOL) LANGUAGES. PHASE I IS FOR A DEMONSTRATION OF THE PROPOSED DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE AND FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DETAILED ARCHITECTURE CONCEPT FOR THE SECOND PHASE. DOCUMENTS WILL BE ENTERED USING LOW COST LABOR BY TELEMAR DATA SYSTEMS (A SERVICE THAT UTILIZED LABOR OUTSIDE THE U.S. COUPLED WITH SOFTWARE FOR DATA ENTRY). PHASE II WILL DEVELOP OF A DETAILED PROTOTYPE OF THE DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.
