Abstract:

The Technology Information, Products, and Services TIPS system is an effective tool for the capture and transfer of information about the CERL campus of the Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC assets. In TIPS these assets include people, capabilities, products, and publications. Relevant information is captured as part of the daily business practices of ERDC researchers, supervisors, managers, and staff. Once approved, appropriate information is provided to potential internal and external ERDC customers. This work builds upon the prototype Conservation Technology web site. Based on technical support feedback and a formal survey of users of the initial prototype, requirements for the TIPS were developed. This report documents the system design, business processes, and database structures of TIPS. Initial requirements for implementation of TIPS at all ERDC campuses are also addressed. Draft Corps of Engineers Life-Cycle Management Information System LCMIS documentation was prepared to document system requirements.
