Abstract

This article describes a graphical system which stores, retrieves, edits, tracks, audits, sorts, combines, formats and encodes engineering data for the generation of engineering schedules/drawings. The system is particularly helpful in the revision of engineering layout drawings. The graphic system includes a plurality of software modules 10, a series of partition data sets 12, and time sharing operating system 14. The time sharing operation system supports algorithms residing in the software modules and file manipulation language on a common data base with links to a computer-assisted graphics system (plotter). The graphic system provides the following functions.
