S.I.S. PROGRAM SUITE
|S.I.S. Master Program
||This is the primary S.I.S. program. Used for data
editing, charting and reporting. The same program is used for any
S.I.S. region, but can only access a single region at a time.
|S.I.S. Enquiry Program
||The program used for enquiries. Has most of the
enquiry functions contained in the Master Program, and can also handle
multiple regions. The actual number of regions that the Enquiry
Program can handle is essentially unlimited (available disk space is
the only consideration), due to the new method of file handling
implemented with S.I.S. Version 5 in 1994.
|S.I.S. Update Program
||In each regionís office, in the middle of the night,
this program performs the long series of calculations that fill the
Enquiry Programís screens and reports. This is how results that would
normally take minutes to calculate, along with large support
databases, now are instantly available in a database approximately 1
MB in size.
|S.I.S. Utility Program
||This program performs various system setup and
maintenance functions, such as printer setup, the password database,
program configuration settings, monthly database file maintenance,
|S.I.S. Tools Program
||This program, as its name states is a general tool to
help automate some of the tasks performed by S.I.S. Administrators. It
automatically archives all daily processing & exception reports, daily
update files, etc., prepares the daily comments for transmission
around the regions (helps to minimize long distance charges), etc.
|S.I.S. Audit Program
||This program allows Research Heads to define selected
fields in the S.I.S. database for monitoring. For example, the First
Forecast Year EPS field for S.I.S. CATEGORY ĎAí stocks could be set
for monitoring, with a first warning at 30 days, and a severe warning
at 60 days.
When the Audit Report is run, and if the First Forecast Year EPS
value has not been updated for 30 days, an entry will appear on the
report. This is essentially the opposite of the Revision Report which
details those values that have been edited.
