4.4.4 Utility Programs

Utility programs will be used to allow system administrators and operators to maintain the tables that drive the programs and services of CHART II. All of the programs and services described in this section are configurable. Many of the fields within those tables can be changed or viewed within the utility programs that support CHART II. This will include reporting, changing operator privileges and setting operator area of responsibilities for a given time period. The described GUI and system services will read the information in the tables as they perform their designated tasks. Where possible, the GUI and services have been designed to allow operators default configurations to minimize required set up procedures. However, flexibility to make very specific changes has been built in to handle most foreseeable circumstances.
