Title: User interface techniques in the counseling module of TOPS (Transportation Operational Personal Property Standard)

Abstract

The Transportation Operational Personal Property Standard System (TOPS) is an automated information management system to help administer the personal property transporation program for the Department of Defense (DOD). TOPS was fielded at four prototype sites in the late summer of 1988. Prototype testing is currently underway, with system deployment scheduled for 1989. When fully deployed, TOPS will save DOD both time and money and help ensure that all shipments made by armed services personnel are handled quickly and efficiently. The success of the TOPS system depends upon several key factors. Of course, TOPS must give transportation clerks at military personal property shipping offices a tool with which they can perform their jobs with greater ease, speed, and correctness. However, before TOPS can achieve success in the field, it must first find acceptance from the transportation clerks themselves. The purpose of this document is to examine the user interface techniques used in the Counseling module of TOPS to ensure user acceptance and data base integrity, both key elements in the ultimate success of TOPS. 6 refs., 12 figs.
