Abstract : Included in the CRAMTD Computer Integrated Manufacturing system for combat rations is a management system, Vendor Evaluation System (VES), to identify material vendors, associating them with purchases, and tracking their relative performance in terms of applicable criteria (previous short term project). That program is available for implementation in producer plants. A prototype Tailored VES (DPSC) was designed (this short term project) by CRAMTD/DPSC personnel to assist DPSC in its management of quality history records and product tracking. The Tailored VES (DPSC) was developed and installed on the database server at the CRAMTD Demonstration Site and remote access provided to DPSC. It uses an Oracle 7 database management system and contains the USDA inspection data as collected by their Operational Ration Database system. The prototype system is serving as a stepping stone to test system functionality and performance. A follow-on contract would be required to complete the project, incorporate additional data sources, and customize data analysis to fulfill additional DPSC requirements.
