The Navy Ships Parts Control Center SPCC is designed as the Navys inventory control point for ship maintenance parts and has the responsibility for projecting requirements and procuring materials for the types of parts which SPCC manages. To support this mission, the Technical Data Support Section, Code 5652, of SPCC has the responsibility for maintaining more than seven million aperture cards of technical documents. The overwhelming size of the document files, increasing demand for documents, and cumbersomeness of manual retrieval and refile procedures and inadequate equipment combine to create an extremely difficult to control situation. Based on a comprehensive review of the overall situation at SPCC, current technology and future trend of technology development, a recommendation has been made to start converting the microfilm-based manual technical document files at SPCC to an optic-based automation storage and retrieval system in three phases.
