Abstract : The Computer Generated Plan of Action and Milestones (POAM) Program was developed to generate a Plan of Action and Milestones Chart using computer graphics. These charts are used in reports and system Decision Papers. The charts show the progress and methodology of a project. The original charts were generated by hand (ruler and pencil with a final typed copy) and by graphics procedures. The computer program will enable the user to generate these graphs faster, and more efficiently. The program uses Fortran, and Display Integrated Software System and Plotting Language (DISSPLA). DISSPLA is a software package that enables the user to produce graphics. The user is advised to become familiar with the introductory portions of the DISSPLA manual. This manual explains how POAMs are produced through interactive and batch computer methods.
