The two types of data were combined in a user interface dashboard developed and deployed
within VBS. The Raytheon Virtual Business System
The principal advantage of VBS, a homegrown information system at Raytheon IADC, is to allow any employee at the IADC to rapidly develop and deploy easily learnable user interfaces, called
