Abstract : Several problems of importance in the design and implementation of Naval management information systems have been studied. An adaptive file system, which changes the physical organization of a data base so as to minimize the average access time in response to varying needs for records have been analyzed and simulated. A generalized interrupt processer for PL/1 has been constructed and is being used to test some new methods of integrating the modules of a large system.
