Paper Abstract

The advantages of a disc file based data management system for optical design are outlined, and the file structure of a program package written for the HP1000 computer explained. The sacrifice in computation speed involved in disc processing is redeemed by the efficiency of the whole design process and the response of the system to an interactive user. The use of currently available microcode routines can improve OTF and raytrace computation speeds.
