ICL Hong Kong and SIA Computer Services have won a $640,000 contract to install a Unix-based Clan system for a local ship repair and heavy engineering company, Hong Kong Dockyards. The ICL Clan 4 model 255 with 4Mb of memory and 330Mb of disk storage will run Shortlands Gold Accounting Software. ICL will also supply its Uniguide shell/interface to hide the powerful and useful Unix features and simplify its operation and administrative chores. SIA will provide a customised module to go with six standard Shortland modules: general ledger, report writer, accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll and stock control and fixed assets. The specialised module is for job costing: each ship repair undertaking is broken down into hundreds of sub-tasks, each of which is charged for 8 our, materials and facilities at different rates.
