Abstract
CURRENTLY, OFFICER REQUIREMENTS DETERMINATION IS PERFORMED BY HIGHLY EXPERIENCED AND SPECIALIZED MANPOWER ANALYSTS. A SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE A DEVELOPMENT TOOL TO ASSIST NON-EXPERTS IN ESTIMATING OFFICER MANNING REQUIREMENTS DURING THE EARLY PLANNING PHASES OF EACH NEW SHIP AND SUBMARINE ACQUISITION AND FOR EACH UPGRADE. THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH EFFORT IS INTENDED TO PRODUCE A PROTOTYPE EXPERT SYSTEM TO PERFORM EARLY OFFICER MANNING ESTIMATES, BASED ON SHIP REQUIRED OPERATIONAL CAPABILITIES/PROJECTED OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT (ROC/POE) INSTRUCTIONS AND OTHER GUIDANCE. THE SYSTEM IS TO BE DEVELOPED USING GURU SOFTWARE AND TO RUN ON A VAX/VMS OPERATING SYSTEM. IT WILL BE TESTED TO SEE IF IT CAN REPLICATE THE RESULTS ACHIEVED BY THE SPECIALISTS NOW PERFORMING THESE ANALYSES, WITHOUT THE AID OF SUCH SYSTEMS. SUCCESSFUL ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE PHASE I OBJECTIVE WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF FULLY AUTOMATING SHIP MANNING REQUIREMENTS DETERMINATION FUNCTIONS USING KNOWLEDGE-BASED EXPERT SYSTEMS WHICH WOULD BE UNDERTAKEN IN PHASE II.
