Abstract : This volume, which describes results in the Phase C effort on systems design research, covers work on developing tools and techniques intended to lead to a rational integrated approach to the design of digital computer systems. A section on computer system design theory describes the steps followed in the overall design of a digital computer system, discusses the state of development of the techniques used in the various design steps, and proposes methods for advancing and automating some of the less undeveloped design steps. The results of a literature survey on heuristic programming are also included, as a preliminary effort to find heuristics which might be applicable to the systems design task. (Author)
