Abstract:

The Personnel Data Retrieval Time-Sharing System, using the ECCO program, operates under the ANFSQ-32 Time-Sharing System to provide an on-line inquiry capability for searching personnel data files and outputting the required information. The inquiry capability is provided by an on-line Model 28 or Model 33 teletype send-receive set. This equipment allows the inquirer to insert the commands, control information, and search parameters required for the data retrieval. The system provides three basic capabilities for processing personnel information items contained in the data base. These are 1 A generalized search capability whereby individuals with various backgrounds and characteristics may be identified from the data base. 2 A list capability is provided which allows the operator to specify a print-out of any of the information contained in each individuals record in a variety of formats. 3 A capability is provided to perform two statistical operations on any quantified items of information in the data base. The two statistical routines are the arithmetic mean and the range.
