Abstract:

The history of the application of interactive computer techniques to the problem of production scheduling is a compendium of short lived success and failures. This article is a case history which describes the development of an interactive system being used to schedule the starting dates for the overhaul of military aircraft at a Naval Aircraft Rework Facility. The three parts of this serialized article each describe different aspects of the development of this system. Part I concerns itself with the historical causes of failure in this type of development effort, and the general steps taken to overcome these causes. In Part II, the development of a successful scheduling system for a Naval Air Rework Facility is discussed. Part III emphasizes the problems of quantifying the users desired objective of the creation of better schedules. Author
