Another in a series of studies describing Laboratory Problem II (LP-II), an experiment designed to evaluate alternative logistic policies and procedures for an intercontinental ballistic-missile force of the 1963 to 1965 time period. This memorandum describes the advanced data-processing system used in LP-II, which serves as a medium for information flow and management control and which is designed to be compatible with real-world situations. The authors discuss the organizations initiating the inputs, the information and data flows, the internal machine processing, and the machine outputs and reports.
