What capability do the SIFS user files provide to the user?
The capability to re-direct specified TRICs or program images to a file of their choice
Why is it important for the SIFS user files to be managed?
Because flat files can easily be lost, destroyed or corrupted. e.g., operator error, power fluctuations, disk crash, and so forth

Message packets of DLATS rejects that are returned to the materiel management system account for correction and resubmission
What will happen if an attempt is made to edit the NARRATIVE file and how can someone use the NARRATIVE file?
Attempts to edit this file will corrupt it and cause the ADRSS system to lock and abort. To use the NARRATIVE file, the materiel management system SIFS monitor must catalog a materiel management system work file and then copy the NARRATIVE file into it
If system users require data packets to be retransmitted what should they do?
They should contact the ADRSS monitor. The ADRSS monitor can use the retransmittal subsystem to selectively extract data from the Cumulative History File - VAAHSTU
What is meant by the term "degraded operation"?
The steps an action base takes when the materiel management system is temporarily inoperative or when other circumstances impose significant limitations on normal processing capabilities
How do you perform quality control during degraded operations?
Make sure that you take the following actions: set up a separate distribution system to ensure all degraded operations documents are available for quality control; ensure all degraded operations transactions are available and quality-controlled before building the recovery files when the system becomes operational; set a cutoff time for degraded operations transactions before coming on-line; and monitor the correction of rejects that result from processing degraded operations inputs

What text code is used on an issue request when assets are available during degraded operations?
TEX code 6
During the recovery process, who identifies all system rejects?
Differentiate between short and long term manual accounting procedures. How often is each term performed?
