SL/AM-IT: a CD-rom-based, interactive bibliography on service life and durability

Abstract:This paper describes a technology transfer technique to handle large corpora of technical information. The paper describes and illustrates a sophisticated Information Technology tool to interactively browse over 1500 abstracts and full text documents in the domain of service life and asset management. The first goal of the project is to provide full access to this compendium of information in the topic domain. The second goal of the project is to illustrate a methodology for data storage, data retrieval and technology transfer for other technology domains. The product described in this paper is a compact disk-read only memory (CD-ROM)-based, interactive bibliography on service life prediction, durability and asset management. There are two innovative features of this compendium: (1) a keyphrase index, that was created automatically using sophisticated indexing tools, and (2) an intuitive, interactive interface to large volumes of technical information. The paper describes the problems of accessing the existing large volumes of data and information related to service life prediction, durability and asset management, outlines sophisticated IT tools currently available for indexing and searching large corpora of technical information, details the interface and background data structure of the SL/AM-IT (Service Life/Asset Management-Information Technology) methodology and product, and discusses advantages of such techniques in the domain of service life and asset management and other similar technical domains.
