Abstract

The importance of providing user-oriented, efficient input to engineering programs cannot be overemphasized. Most potential users are basing their decision — to use or not to use a program — on their impression of documentation and input only. Over the past two decades, or more, a series of input solutions was devised, beginning with the printed data sheets using fixed format, through program packages with unified input sheets, suites of interacting programs in which the results of the preceding programs were providing the input to the following ones, to problem-oriented languages with free format entry.
