An important problem in the Author's company (Lisnave) is the maintenance of a balance between the loads and resources in its shiprepair work. The resources must be known in terms of the "bottlenecks", these are the docks and quays and certain trades (mechanical fitters, pipe fitters, welders, and platers). Information on the available resources is handled by the company's Shiprepairing Resources Management System, which provides the management with the necessary information for taking decisions on the conditions under which an order for repair work can be accepted. The S.R.M.S., a real-time data-processing system with CRT display, is described, with examples of the various displays. Input is via the screen, four files are used (orders, loads, manpower, and logistics), and processing can be either by teleprocessing or in batch mode. A Sales Information System is being developed to complement the S.R.M.S.
