Abstract:

The intent of this research has been to identify system input and output changes that will be needed to transport FRESH an employment scheduling expert system from CINCPACFLT to CINCLANTFLT. A general discussion of expert system theory is presented tying this theory to FRESH wherever possible. Specific uses of FRESH at CINCPACFLT are discussed as well as the present Pacific FRESH input and output requirements. CINCLANTFLTs existing manual method of scheduling is discussed. Finally CINCLANTFLTs proposed changes to the Pacific FRESH inputs and outputs are analyzed. Conclusions identify what FRESH inputs and outputs must be changed prior to FRESH transference to CINCLANTFLT. FRESH is an extremely useful expert system prototype that is used 1 to generate long range ships employment schedules--a macro ships schedule which covers all major events for a ship over a five year period 2 to monitor changes that impact Fleet readiness and provide viable replacements for units with major casualties 3 to evaluate the impact of rescheduling ships and 4 to improve effectiveness of valuable personnel resources.
