Abstract : The Data Traffic Management System (DTMS) is being developed to support mutual data consistency among a large number of military construction automated systems and coherent access to information stored on the systems. A prototype Report Generation Facility (RGF), a subsystem of the DTMS, has been designed to provide the coherent access to data systems served by the DTMS. Implementation completed to date on the prototype RGF is described. The RGF consists of three major components: a Data Dictionary/Directory System (DDS), a User Interface (UI), and a Data Systems Interface (DSI). Currently, the prototype RGF is linked to two data systems-Construction Appropriations, Programming, Control and Execution System (CAPCES), and Military and Civil Progress Reporting System (MCPRS)-and supports only standard report identification, retrieval, and execution.
