Abstract or Description

Abstract: "This paper lists some of the architectural and control alternatives that should be considered in seeking to integrate software for demand and supply management. The paper also describes FORS, an environment for implementing these alternatives. FORS treats both procedures and data sets as objects. A visual programming interface is provided for the manipulation of these objects. The interface shields the user from much of the drudgery of building and using systems for distributed problem solving."
