Abstract
This project began as an internship at GMI - Engineering Management Institute in the summer of 1982. The assignment there was to code in FORTRAN a, "Interactive, user friendly, menu driven program which would provide the basic calculation tools encountered in Engineering Economy". The program was intended ultimately for use by an Engineering Economy course taught by GMI - EMI' continuing education program. Before beginning work on the project, I needed. to familiarize myself with three areas of operation: 1) the hardware (IBM/360) and system's editing software (MUSIC) to be employed, 2) the FORTRAN IV language, and 3) the field of Engineering Economy, the tools to be developed and their applications. Information about the hardware, the editor and the general shop operation procedures were readily available in handouts. I also audited the Introductory Programming class taught at GMI/EMI which offered intensive instruction for familiarization with the system and software. Professors and operators were also very willing to help answer questions.
