Abstract:

This thesis analyzes, designs and implements an expert system for the management of hazardous material at a Naval Supply Center NSC. This system is part of a series of expert systems built by the Naval Postgraduate School to assist the Naval Supply Systems Command in automating its inventory management systems at NSCs. Selecting the proper storage conditions and location for newly received hazardous material requires the NSCs expert in such matters, the safety and health manager, to research the primary data base, the Hazardous Material Information System HMIS, and any other relevant information sources, and extract the pertinent information. He determines the best storage conditions for the material and passes this information to the warehouse worker. The Hazardous Material Expert System HAZMAT ES will facilitate making the storage decision and will allow a warehouse worker to safely store hazardous material without the assistance of the safety and health manager.
