Title: The program specifications for the user interface using SAS reg sign software for the worldwide household goods information system for transportation modernization (WHIST-MOD). [Logistics]

Abstract

The Directorate of Personal Property of the Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC) asked Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to design and prototype a decision support system, the Worldwide Household Goods Information System for Transportation Modernization (WHIST-MOD). This decision support system will automate current tasks and provide analysis tools for evaluating the Personal Property Program, predicting impacts to the program, and planning modifications to the program to meet the evolving needs of military service members and the transportation industry. The system designed by ORNL consists of three application modules: system dictionary applications, data acquisition applications, and user applications. The development of the user applications module is divided into two phases. Round 1 is the data selection front-end interface, and Round 2 is the output or back-end interface. This report contains the design specification for the back-end output interface of the user applications module, which was prototype using SAS, a data management and statistical analysis toolset. This report discusses our goals for the back-end interface and describes how we met these goals. The prototype design fulfills the users' need for a flexible interface that can be used to produce a variety of tabular and graphical output. 72 figs.
