Abstract:

The report describes the structure and operating procedures of experimental computer programs used to simulate a real-time moving network display of spacecraft checkout operations. Proposed in RM-4678-NASA N65-35577 for use by the human monitor of an automated prelaunch checkout, the system dynamically shows, in network form, the successive and concurrent stages of a complex process. The programs were written in MAP for the IBM 70407044 computer system to be used with the RAND Graphic Input Tablet and a cathode ray tube display screen. The Tablet is used for on-line construction of the initial network and for operation of the simulation programs. A complete program listing is available on request. Author
