Abstract:

The Ship Store system has been selected as a highly suitable real-life environment to investigate the effectiveness of the MODEL system. The ship Store system is used for financial and inventory management of large number of stores aboard Navy ships. It derives its complexity and size from the large number of diverse inputs, wide reporting responsibilities, and particularly the need for a man-machine interface to balance, reconcile and adjust many isolated but connected actions. The latter require complex man-machine interfaces, on-line databases and real-time communications among programs. There are 14 different inputs and 36 reports, in addition to large on-line databases. The project development produced automatically 38 programs with a total of almost 50,000 lines of PL1 code.
