  • processes current Exchange data files and inputs selected data into MS Access
  • processes FASE results (analysis application that proposes changes to Cell Transmitter Frequencies) and inputs data into MS Access
  • outputs text files from MS Access into the format required by FASE
  • compares Exchange and FASE data and find differences between them
  • prompts the user for which proposed changes to retain from the FASE results
  • adds new Cells, Networks, and Exchanges to the system, updating several text files with the required data
