The Type Definition Module TDM is part of the combat model Force Structure Model FSM and has been developed under contract A89KL619. The purpose of TDM is to provide a way of interactively creating and modifying so-called UNIT TYPES. These UNIT TYPES are used as templates for creating the UNITS for a FSM simulation run. The UNIT TYPES are stored in two Type Definition Files the system wide available PRE DEFINED TYPES and the locally available USER DEFINED TYPES. This report describes the structure of UNIT TYPES and the way TDM manipulates this structure. Also the relation of UNIT TYPES to the rest of FSM is briefly described. Chapter 2 describes UNIT TYPES and the Type Definition Files in which they are stored. The relation of TDM with such programs as the Unit Definition Program UDP and FSM itself it also described here. In chapter 3 some general information on the User Interface, i.e. on how to use the VDU the Video Display Unit, or screen and keyboard is given. Finally, chapter 4 explains howto use TDM in detail. The Type Definition Module TDM is written in the Ada programming language, and runs on VAX computers with the VMS operating system. Keywords Interfaces, Netherlands, User manuals.
