Thank you for getting back to me. I will certainly look into using the
"axiomatic" block in Z similar to the structure found in the Vending
Machine example. It may take me a little to figure out how to structure it
appropriately. I will dicuss this concept with my advisers and see what we
can come up with. If I run into any troubles or road blocks I will be
certain to post them here to get people's thoughts.
