Abstract : This is a final report designed to analyze logically the Navy's Ship Electronic Inventory System and to explain procedure necessary to maintain this system on the UNIVAC high-speed digital computer. The system contains over 500,000 separate units of information which must be checked for accuracy and consistency and which must be processed in a variety of ways. The processing required more than 3200 hours of computer time to produce the more than 120,000 pages of reports required each year. (Author)
