Object/Shape Recognition Technology: An Assessment of the Feasibility of Implementation at Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services DLA DS is facing substantial potential budget cuts, which will require the organization to increase efficiency and cut costs. DLA DS is assessing the feasibility to improve the item disposal process with an objectshape recognition technology as a means to increase efficiency. The technology may potentially reduce the time required to identify items in order to route for appropriate disposal. With the advancement of new technology and the availability of databases, it may now be possible to identify an object using recognition technology. Given the potential of these technologies to reduce identification time and errors, research to assess the viability of existing prototypes is justified. This applied project identified and assessed objectshape recognition technologies as a means to support efficiency while taking into account wider government policy and objectives in relation to technology adoption. This project evaluated the feasibility of implementation of these technologies that includes an analysis of DLA DS s items disposal process, a technology readiness assessment of the technology, and a cost-benefit analysis to assess the financial payoffs of an investment in the technology. The objective was to understand the items disposal process and assess objectshape recognition technology to address the problem that unlabeled items poses to DLA DS at Camp Pendleton, CA.
