While engineers must participate in the construction of the Integrated Master Schedule, this thesis proposes a way to reduce that effort through automation. When standardized sub processes exist, automated task name construction with consistent action/object naming convention can be applied to multiple system artifacts. These repeating sub processes also allow the derivation of task sequence and dependencies. The Architecture-Based Utility for Repeating Task Planning (A-BURTP) is a Microsoft Access database constructed of tables containing system configuration items, artifact data, local processes, and governing instructions listed in the systems engineering plan (SEP). A-BURTP generates task planning worksheets (TPWs) in Microsoft Excel that import directly into Microsoft Project. The TPWs contain all task attributes needed to allow schedule developers to work independently to link, sort, and group the imported tasks. Appendices include research on system context for Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) systems onboard aircraft carriers and research on Model-Based Systems Engineering data exports using Vitech CORE9. Scope is limited to constructing the artifact tasking for an Engineering Change Proposal on a fictional system under change. NAVAIR processes and instructions are used when available. The 2011 Office of the Secretary of Defense SEP template is a key reference.
