Abstract : The purpose of the Ship's Stores Automation Modernization (SSAM) project is to identify and describe potential areas for automation that will enhance the shipboard ship's stores afloat operations and improve record control. This Phase I report describes the current Navy Ship's Stores Afloat (SSA) System (baseline) and includes a synthesized function flow and associated function descriptions in a standard format. Several types of ships were visited to determine the manner in which each ship's SSA system is actually being implemented. The data acquired from these visits were compared with the baseline system to identify differences in the method of implementation. These functional comparisons are presented in tables for each of the ship types visited. (Author)
