Examples using the present and proposed procedures are outlined and facilities designs, including cost and effort comparisons between the systems, are analyzed. Descriptions of the data base and the management information system for the proposed procedure are provided. Conclusions derived and advantages recognized from the proposed procedure are discussed.
