Text of TAPES Screenshots

This document provides screeshots of the Total Architecture, Plans, and Execution System (TAPES), built by Roy Roebuck and used by the HQ, US Army Europe, Deputy Chief of Staff, Information Management (DCSIM) during the period 1989 till 1992. TAPES is an implemented IT Management subset of the General Enterprise Management (GEM) methodology for whole-enterprise management. A SQL variant of TAPES was built by USAREUR in 1993.The TAPES application and documentation was submitted by USAREUR to U.S. Department of the Army in 1990 as a request that it be further developed and standardized across the U.S. Army. TAPES was subsequently accepted as a MACOM Information Service Module (MISM) by Dept. of Army, and a requirement for TAPES was included in the DoD SBIS Phase II RFP. Neither the Army nor OSD implemented TAPES, even though the USAREUR DCSIM, in 1991, said that TAPES was the whole goldmine, in relation to OSD (Mr. Paul Strassman) asking for the field to submit their IT golden nuggets.

GEM was conceived an initially implemented and demonstrated during the period from 1982 till 1989. GEM and TAPES are the copyrighted creations of Roy Roebuck. GEM was originally implemented in Lotus 123 and then dBase II and III. TAPES was originally implemented in dBase IV as a partial GEM migration from dBase III.
