Abstract : CODAP80 is an enhanced IBM version of the Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Programs. The software system is used to process occupational information and includes programs that range from data entry to statistical analysis. CODAP80 is based on a database management concept which allows the job analyst more versatility in analysis than its predecessor. Included with the system are four manuals: the CODAP80 User's Manual, Job Analysis Manual, Systems Manual, and Executive Summary. The CODAP80 occupational analysis computer system consists of two major sets of software: the software that comprises database creation, and the software that comprises the interpreter. The entire CODAP80 system is written in FORTRAN according to the specifications outlined in the document IBM System/360 and System/370. The Systems Manual is organized into two major sections: database creation and the interpreter. The characteristics and attributes of the two system sections is discussed, with subroutines being identified and file layouts displayed. All file layouts pertain to the data to be found in the sample set of data introduced in the User's Manual. The operation of the CODAP80 interpreter is outlined, as well as token recognition and the access and retrieval of database information.
