Call for Papers

The ASNE Day 2010 Call for Papers has expired.

In these dynamic times the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard are challenged to provide and sustain the forces that are required to fulfill our nation’s interests whenever necessary anywhere around the world. Operational tempo remains consistently at a very high level while acquisition and maintenance budgets are constrained and a diverse set of varying requirements demands a flexible, adaptive and agile force structure comprising military systems that are highly capable and readily interoperable with other U.S. and coalition forces. These systems must also have high operational availability and low total operating cost and be engineered with a total systems approach, centered on the operators in order to enhance their military effectiveness. To achieve these challenging goals the processes that provide these systems must be examined
and improved.

Authors are requested to submit 1-2 page detailed abstracts on these and other topics and concepts that address process improvement in naval engineering and related topics. Original unclassified papers are requested.

Potential paper topics include:

  • Engineering and Acquisition Process Improvement
  • Integrated Product and Process Development
  • Virtual, Collaborative Design Environment
  • Systems Integration & Interoperability
  • Total Ownership Cost Control
  • Requirements Development
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Design Tools & Methods
  • Design for Construction
  • Modular Construction/Shipbuilding
  • Hull, Mechanical & Electrical
  • Combat Systems & Weapons Systems
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • ForceNet
