Abstract : The scheduling of events aboard U.S. Navy ships is a complex and dynamic problem. Currently, this process is primarily manual and involves searching through several manuals and instructions to find information. Many times the schedules produced are inaccurate, which can make conducting activities very difficult and result in crew frustration. By automating some of the functions of the scheduling process, accurate schedules can be quickly produced. As a result, valuable time will be saved and the planning and coordination of shipboard activities can be effectively accomplished in order to achieve and maintain a high level of readiness. This thesis is part of the ongoing Argos research project which supports the Navy's paperless ship concept by eliminating or minimizing manual procedures used on ships.
