Ontology-centered integration of project management, cost and resource modeling with analysis, simulation and visualization: a case study of space port operations

Abstract

As the size and complexity of space launches continues to grow an architecture is becoming ever more necessary to accurately organize and determine workforce requirements for the involved organizations. The Launch Services Program at Kennedy Space Center has recently begun using a tool developed by the technology consulting firm Booz-Allen Hamilton specifically for this purpose. This paper addresses the possibility of transferring the information developed and organized by the Kennedy Workforce Planning Tool into a standard Microsoft Project document with integrated cost, resource modeling and analysis, simulation and visualization using an ontology-centered approach. The study emphasize on the potential of being able to forecast the workforce resource requirements.
