The KINDAS program and database for metallurgical problems consists of:

- The user interface KINDIA;
- The database KINDAT;
- Simulation, calculation and service programs.

The main characteristics of the system KINDAS are:

- External control by menus or self-running batch programs;
- Internal control by normal text files (ASCII-files), so that special applications are portable and compatible with other metallurgical systems and calculation programs communicating by ASCII-files;
- Supply of elementary data handling procedures including algebraic calculations which all real procedures in metallurgy consist of, so that the system may treat metallurgical data of any conventional form and transform them into any other conventional form;
- Access to the serial and the parallel ports for input and output of data and diagrams, for call of external programs and system functions.
