CHIEF was being designed in 1990 and was to run on ICL 2900 kit, replacing the then-current system which was on ICL 1900s. I and a colleague were working on an unrelated system at the time, but were called in to help with the first major review of the CHIEF data structure.

This review revealed that at least one of the analysts had specified a mandatory rates table but didn't have a clue where that mandatory data was going to come from.
