Computer Aided Logistics Support - A Program Overview,
ASSOCIATION OF SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS OF THE NAVAL SEA SYSTEMS COMMAND WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The Computer Aided Logistics Support CALS Program is a challenging DoD-wide initiative to achieve major improvements in supportable weapons system designs and logistic technical information. These improvements will result from a transitioning away from a paper-intensive weapon system support process to a largely automated and integrated operation with substantial implementation of CALS by 1990. This paper presents a description of the CALS Program, from top level DoD objectives to desk-top CALS software for use in NAVSEA. Discussed in this paper are both management and technical issues of this interservices program methods and approaches for integrating logistics and technical data requirements into the design and engineering process proposals for re-defining and streamlining data requirements and acquisition to maximize use of automated technologies and transferring technical and logistics information in digital form. Current computer demonstration projects and candidate CALS software are described.
