In summary, the ROSE system has been designed to allow efficiency to be combined with fiexibility for support of interactive computer graphics applications. The object paradigm is exploited throughout all aspects of the ROSe system because it provides a natural data organization for graphical data, and because it leads to clustering ofdata in secondary storage to maximize the performance of data retrieval as demanded by high performance interactive computer graphics applications such as engineering design.
