Abstract:

The overall objective of the Department of Defense Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support CALS Program is to integrate the design, manufacturing, and logistic functions through the efficient application of computer technology. The National Bureau of Standards has been funded since Spring 1986 to recommend a suite of industry standards for system integration and digital data transfer, and to accelerate their implementation. A major FY87 thrust was the completion of initial documentation of the high-priority standards required in the CALS environment. This volume is one of four providing a collection of the final reports presented-to the CALS Policy Office. Major areas contained within this volume include text, data management, media, raster compression, and conformance testing strategy. The other three volumes contain the graphics and product data reports.... CALS, Conformance, DoD, IRDS, Media, ODAODIF, Raster compression, SGML, SQL, Testing.
