Icon to Represent CT/2 Runtime Status Supervisor

       The disclosed icon represents the sign-on status of the
CT/2 Runtime operator.  It shows that the operator is signed on as a
supervisor.  CT/2 Runtime is a runtime environment for business and
banking transactions created by the CT/2 Definition environment.  The
icon is used by the Presentation Manager*-based human-computer
interface to the CT/2 Runtime status window.

      Visually, the icon represents a group of people with one
prominent member.

      An icon for the CT/2 Runtime Teller supports the Status area of
the Runtime portion of the CT/2 package by providing a user interface
for the following capabilities:
o    Provides a means for representing to operators and officers the
status of the signed-on user.  The supervisor is one who performs
account deposits and withdrawals, cashes checks, exchanges money, and
refers customers to customer service representatives.
o    The icon, at a glance, informs the user and the user's
supervisor what the authority level of the user is.  Other authority
levels are customer service representative, supervisor and officer.
Each authority level allows the user differing levels of
responsibility and accountability at the branch.
