Field management systems as integrated parts of the Gazprom recovery system

Automated project systems (APS) and automated technical parameter management systems (ATPMS), which are based on mathematic modelling, appeared at the end of the 1950s. Computers, which began rapidly developing at that point, became the instrument used to further modelling in practically all areas of science and technology including in the Soviet Union. This was the case foremost in rocket science. Today it is hard to imagine studying any process or the management of any process, including designing units and equipment, without modelling and optimization systems.
