A conceptual design has been announced of an expert-system computer program, and the development of a prototype of the program, intended for use as a project-management tool. The program integrates schedule and risk data for the purpose of determining the schedule applications of safety risks and, somewhat conversely, the effects of changes in schedules on changes on safety. It is noted that the design has been delivered to a NASA client and that it is planned to disclose the design in a conference presentation.
This work was done by Gary P. Moynihan, Daniel J. Fonseca, and Paul S. Ray of the University of Alabama for Johnson Space Center. For further information, contact the JSC Innovation Partnerships Office at (281) 483-3809.
