Abstract:

An interactive program complex that can be used in a scenario for managerial studies of operational standards is described. The scenario is based on aircraft maintenance and flight data obtained from the Naval 3-M Maintenance and Material Management System. The scenario simulates the data selection and processing that a manager needs when he is seeking to establish standards relating operational use of the aircraft under certain circumstances to maintenance actions. The design of the program complex has some interesting features. Emphasis has been given to the use of a dialogue mode of interaction, so that effective use of the system does not depend on programming expertise by the user. Also, there is a clear separation of the command input phase from the data processing phase, with only the appropriate computer facilities being used in each phase. The interface between these two subsystems illustrates an effective means of transfer between such subsystems.
