Abstract : A system called NLPQ is being developed at the Naval Postgraduate School as part of a research project in natural language man-machine communication. The basic part of the system consists of a rule language and programs to compile and execute rules. NLPQ currently allows a user to enter an English text description of a simple queuing problem at a time sharing terminal, have the computer construct an Internal Problem Description, and then produce an equivalent English text description and a GPSS simulation program to solve the problem. Recently, a FORTRAN routine for performing a GPSS-like simulation was incorporated into the system. The thesis reports on the development of another set of rules for NLPQ to translate an Internal Problem Description into an array of information required by this FORTRAN routine to perform the simulation.
