Abstract : The TID Publishing Management Information System (MIS) is a menu-driven tool used to maintain information on products related to a publishing effort. It is also used to facilitate operation of a service center. The MIS consists of database files and application programs written using the FoxproTM commercial database software program. The MIS is used by the Technical Information Division (TID); its Publications Branch; and its Presentations, Multimedia, and Photography Branch, groups that produces written and visual communications products at the Naval Command, Control and Ocean Surveillance Center (NCCOSC) RDT&E Division (NRaD). The TID Publishing MIS allows TID personnel to maintain statistical information and generate reports, lists, and other product information. It is designed for data entry from existing route sheets, time sheets, and worksheets so that clerks and aides with minimal computer experience can keep publishing records current.
