Abstract : This functional description (FD) for Civilian Manpower Cost Controls Automated Data System (ADS) is written to provide: 1) The civilian manpower cost controls system requirements which must be satisfied to serve as a basis for mutual understanding between the user and the developer; 2) Information on performance requirements and data sources for development of formats of civilian manpower cost controls for hard copy and CRT displays which will provide cost controls data in detail and summary levels; and 3) A basis for development of automated procedures to display, access, and update civilian personnel cost controls through remote entry devices and computer interfaces. The automation of the system for development of civilian manpower cost controls is required to eliminate the manual extraction of data from automated reports, preparation of work sheets, and manual computation and transfer of data within and between work sheets. The automated system must be designed to accept and process data that are both input through a remote terminal in OCOA and derived from FORMDIMSP/BS. It must compute, manipulate and print data in formats suitable for use by members of the ARSTAF.
