A system of programs performing calculations for relative instrumental neutron activation analysis with germanium detectors was developed. It can be used if standards and unknowns are irradiated together and measured at the same counting geometry. Experimental and library data are evaluated by five programs. The final result is a table of concentrations. The whole system works automatically, without the intervention of an operator and runs on an IBM-PC.
