Appendix E: Prolog
Prolog is a database system used for logging information related to project documents. The system provides basic document electronic-tracking capabilities.
Documents Tracked in Prolog The Thousand Oaks-based project support staff currently uses Prolog to track five different types of documents:
Request for Information
Prolog File Naming and Structure
Prolog data files are created individually for each project. They are named using the six- digit project number and are saved on the network server.
Although Prolog is designed to work as a centralized web-based project collaboration tool, at Amgen it has never been utilized as such. Since it is used on several projects in Thousand Oaks, the staff performs periodic manual exchanges of download data with vendors.
Prolog Administrative Support The Project Support staff provides administrative support to vendors wishing to use Prolog on their projects. The supervisor should be contacted to arrange for the configuration of the application.
