Accessibility of microcomputers has brought increased computing power to an analysts fingertips. The purpose of this research is not to teach Q-Gert, but, to give an analyst familiar with Q-Gert a useful tool making simulation convenient and error free. The Pascal computer program developed within, uses an Apple microcomputer and Graphics Tablet to allow an analyst to create a Q-Gert simulation network using computer aided design techniques. The analyst need only select commands from the Graphics Tablets programmed menu and answer questions regarding the symbols to be drawn. The program will display the network on the high resolution graphics screen and generate a text file containing the computer source code for input to the Q-Gert Analysis program residing on a mainframe computer. The basic concepts of Q-Gert are incorporated into the program. This includes source, regular, queue, statistic, and sink nodes along with activities and parameters. The program was written to be expandable for further development to include more complex concepts of Q-Gert.
