CONVERSION OF LARGE-SCALE IS/R SYSTEMS FOR GENERAL-PURPOSE OPERATION
GENERAL DYNAMICS SAN DIEGO CA CONVAIR DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
The Technical Data Systems Group has constructed a computer-based, general-information storage and retrieval system ISR that has been in operation for several years over a variety of data bases. The general technique employs a repertory of generalized programs that are specification controlled. This feature allows a selection to be made from a library of programs allowing individual customizing of a total system for handling a particular data base. The intent in this report is to examine the philosophy of obtaining an existing mechanized data base and translating or converting it to a format which will enable its being placed in the Convair ISR environment and then to subsequently employ the available flexibilities of retrospective search and total data base analysis.
