Designing a knowledge management system for naval materials failures

Melanitis et al. present a materials informatics approach applied by the Hellenic Naval Academy in this 2021 paper published in MATEC Web of Conferences. Their approach resulted in NAVMAT, developed “by integrating materials engineering and informatics under a platform of knowledge management.” After providing some background on the topic of materials informatics and the management of research information associated with it, the authors describe their system architecture and key features, along with its potential applications. They conclude by providing six expected outcomes associated with the platform, adding that NAVMAT “aims to optimize naval materials failure analysis management and support decision making in maintenance and repair operations (MRO), materials supply management, and staff training.”
