This research addresses the problems associated with integrating the Fundamental Automated Scheduling System (FASS), a PERT/CPM based overhaul scheduling device, into U.S. Naval Shipyards. Considered is the problem of how to effectively integrate FASS into all eight shipyards. The mission, organization, duties, and constraints of Naval shipyards are first described then the background concerning the requirements for the system is developed. the discussion then shifts to the implementation of the system in the shipyards and how each shipyard is utilizing its version of FASS. Finally, a summary of recommended actions and suggestions for further research is provided.
