Description and listing of five small SIMSCRIPT and FORTRAN programs to complete the documentation of Programming by Questionnaire, a technique for reducing the time and cost of preparing large computer programs. Three housekeeping programs, CHKOUT, LOCATE, and KORCT, serve to check, correct, and maintain the program generator deck. The CHKOUT program checks the deck for logical consistency and provides other information essential for correcting and maintaining it. The LOCATE program finds specified cards within the deck, which is very large. The KORCT program makes corrections to the deck and checks to see that it is in order. The JHIST and RHIST programs analyze the results of a JSSPG simulator. JHIST provides a complete history of the jobs in the simulated job shop, and RHIST provides a history of the resources.
