Abstract:

AIMS Applied Information Management System, an information storage and retrieval system used by the Engineering Department at SDC, is described. AIMS inputs are descriptors manually selected from the body and title of documents by a technique not requiring professional subject matter or abstracting skill. Outputs are special computer generated indexes to locate information stored. The most important is the Permuted Descriptor Index. The most common information handled by AIMS consists of SDC documents, technical articles, manuals and catalogs, correspondence, and the standard office files.
