Abstract : An interactive computer-based program is described by which Army Ammunition Supply Point Office personnel interact with a computer program and an ammunition data base to rapidly develop truck load configurations for ammunition resupply convoys. Program data pertaining to ammunition type, quantity, storage location, vehicle type and number is acquired by developing a man-machine dialog with the user. Program execution results in the printing of an ammunition stores slip which shows the types of ammunition and quantities to be loaded upon each convoy vehicle. Mixed vehicle load capability is permitted and large load requirements are automatically continued to other available convoy vehicles, including different vehicles types, until the request is complete.
