Abstract : The EDITSPEC System is an automated system designed to produce construction specifications from Corps of Engineers Guide specifications. The system uses one central computer and a communications network to provide remote terminal access by Corps offices, nationwide to a central data base. This volume provides computer system personnel with the basic system design concepts used in developing EDITSPEC. The relationship between the design concepts and the data and common storage structures within EDITSPEC is also indicated. A description of the basic functions of the system is given in the remaining chapters of the report.
