Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes the capabilities and gives a step-by-step guide to the implementation of a computer-based quota reservation system using the general data management System 2000. The system was designed as a feasibility demonstration for the Air Force Recruiting Service staff. Operational commands are described which allow a user to search the data base to locate enlistment openings. The user can also reserve an enlistment opening when the applicant is ready to accept a position. Management summary commands are available that summarize openings and enlistments by Air Force specialty code, aptitude area and other categories. The implementation steps involve defining the data base, loading the enlistment-type information, attaching the previously reserved applicants, and defining the special functions and comments. Of particular interest is the technique for easily developing and modifying comments to be used for sending messages from the computer to the user using only System 2000 language. A general data management system such as System 2000 can be a useful tool for rapid incremental development of a wide variety of management information systems.
