VEMIS Backup Facility and Transfer of Functions: Phase 1, Pilot Implementation. Final Report.
The Pennsylvania State Department of Education developed an automated system in 1970 to facilitate meeting report requirements to the United States Office of Education. This system provides for computer processing of such information as labor market needs in planning vocational programs, standards for these programs, graduate followup, demographic profiles of pupils and teachers, and utilization of facilities. The starting point of the system, the manpower conversion equation, indicates underdeveloped manpower resources as input into employment policies, manpower requirements, labor supply, and manpower development sources. The system operation calls for meeting the information needs of various management functions concerning the vocational education process and its products. The system programs and procedures discussed in this document were established as a backup facility for the Pennsylvania State Department of Education's present outside contractor. (Author/MF)
