Abstract : The report examines the precoordinated system of indexing used by the Plastics Technical Evaluation Center (PLASTEC) to determine the present problems with the system as well as new requirements that would be forced onto the system as a result of the conversion to computerized service and support by the Defense Documentation Center (DDC). Recommendations made for the improvement of PLASTEC indexing are: (1) improved management of indexing operations, (2) the production of an interim controlled vocabulary list, and (3) the creation of a microthesaurus of plastics terms.
