A SHIPBOARD REPORT ORIGINATION SYSTEM UTILIZING A MICROCOMPUTER

A Report Origination Systems (ROS) has been implemented, using an inexpensive microcomputer system, to help ease the administrative burden facing Navy shipboard managers. The system is an interactive line editing system, with optional prompting, which enables a person who is unfamiliar with the report format to respond to queries in order to edit a highly formatted report. Automatic error checking is performed using a previous edition of the report as a basis. The system allows creation of new formatted reports. The use of a general purpose microcomputer system makes the editing system affordable to a large number of users and also provides a general computing facility for other uses. (Author)
