Sources Sought: Artificial Intelligence (AI) Generated Work Instructions

NCMS is assisting the U.S. Navy is seeking technology that will assist in using AI to capture work instructions. Low-frequency repairs require extensive engineering and have not efficiently leveraged previous evolutions. Supervised machine learning must be harnessed to enable AI-generated work instructions to reduce engineering costs. Methodology will also counter workforce turnover concerns.

Examples of tasks desired:

  • Compile existing technical work instructions to create the baseline of acceptable procedures to start supervised machine learning algorithm development
  • Gain confidence in the algorithms by applicable technical warrant holders
  • Receive a Risk Management Framework (RMF)-type accreditation Authority to Operate (ATO) for the system across all Navy depot maintenance sites (Shipyards, Fleet Readiness Centers, Logistics Bases)
  • Push solution to deck plates to provide immediate responses to shipboard/deployed and depot shop workforce

Responses to Sources Sought should provide:

  • Background of capability development
  • Examples of where the capability is currently used if any
  • A corporate presentation including engineering, manufacturing and testing capabilities
  • Cost Summary Form

Interested parties should complete the following form on or before December 11, 2019. All questions and/or inquiries can be addressed to
