Abstract:

This study assesses the technology and availability of equipment for providing an automated storage, retrieval and transmission system for engineering drawings by converting them into a digitized data stream. The following conclusions are drawn from this study 1 An Advanced Mass Store is important to the entire electronic data store industry and should be strongly supported 2 An automated storage, retrieval and transmission system is practicable 3 The technology is available for such a system and 4 Two major items of equipment, however, are not commercially available at this time--a An inputting device to read engineering drawings or microfilm of engineering drawings and b An outputting device to reconstruct the image on film for contract data packages. The study reviews technologies, equipment, requirements for implementation, and an economic analysis of a system for the Naval Ordnance Station, Louisville.
