Abstract

The Interactive Planning Work Station (EPWS) is a UNIX™-based system intended to support planning and other complex decision-making tasks. Network planning at AT&T has always been supported by a wide variety of edp systems. A typical planning system includes a collection of algorithms that produce large amounts of data to produce a network plan. The primary user interface was, for many years, a set of voluminous printouts. If the system contained an interactive component it was usually in the form of a single package for editing data files or submitting batch runs.
