Abstract : Many managers today require immediate access to accurate data for generation of timely output. Such as the case of the Training and Education division of the Office of Personnel, U.S. Coast Guard. My branch, Psychological Research, used a powerful, interactive language called APL that enabled us to design and implement a management information system for processing school request applications. Although this system was specifically for training involving schools, it could just as well been used for any other type of desired information. (Author)
