dc.description.abstractProcurement of spare parts is both time consuming and costly for the Navy. The Rapid Acquisition of Manufactured Parts (RAMP) is a Navy program designed to reduce the lead time required to procure small mechanical parts by up to 90%. RAMP is a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) which will use computer controlled equipment to produce 15,000 parts per year with an average lot size of four parts. A distributed system consisting of heterogeneous hardware, software and data, the RAMP environment presents many database administration difficulties. This thesis presents an overview of the RAMP Manufacturing System, discusses the data administration issues found in distributed computing environments and flexible manufacturing systems, and suggests an expanded information resource dictionary system to manage and control RAMP's shared data. The problem of maintaining consistency among multiple databases in the event of a failure is examined.en_US
