Abstract
THE FOOD COMPONENT RESEARCH DATA BASE (FCRDB) IS A LARGE, SOPHISTICATED DATABASE OPERATING EFFICIENTLY ON PC/AT COMPUTERS, PROVIDING SOPHISTICATED, COMPLEX RETRIEVALS OF FOOD DATA. IT IS HIGHLY DESIRABLE TO EXTEND THE CAPABILITIES OF THE FCRDB TO INCLUDE SUPPORT FOR: SOPHISTICATED USER INTERFACES, INCLUDING MENUS, FORMS, GRAPHICS, AND HANDLING OF LANGUAGE; ACCESS TO MULTIPLE DATABASES; EXPERT SYSTEMS AND ARTIRICIAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMMING; DISTRIBUTED NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS; AND OPERATION ON A VARIETY OF COMPUTERS AND OPERATING SYSTEMS. THE APPLICATION OF SOPHISTICATED COMPUTER-AIDED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING (CASE) TOOLS, DEVELOPED BY APPLIED LOGIC SYSTEMS, INC., PROVIDES DATABASE AND NETWORK ACCESS FOR EXPERT SYSTEMS, AND GENERATES MENU AND FORMS ACCESS AND INPUT TO COMPLEX DATABASE VIEWS. MULTIPLE, HETEROGENEOUS DATABASES CAN BE ACCESSED SIMULTANEOUSLY. APPLIED LOGIC SYSTEMS, INC., WILL DEVELOP A PROTOTYPE ENVIRONMENT AND AN ENGINEERING PLAN FOR CREATING PRODUCTION EXTENSIONS OF THE FCRDB. THE PROTOTYPE ENVIRONMENT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE FCRDB GOALS AND WILL PROVIDE A HIGHLY SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH TO EXPERIMENT WITH VARIOUS FORMS OF INTERFACES, INCORPORATION OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF EXPERT SUBSYSTEMS, AND COUPLING OF THEFCRDB WITH OTHER DATABASE SYSTEMS.
