Abstract : The Report on the ENIAC consists of five separately bound parts, as follows: 1. ENIAC Operating Manual; 2. ENIAC Maintenance Manual; 3. Part I, Technical Description of the ENIAC, Volume I-Chapters I-VI; 4. Part I, Technical Description of the ENIAC, Volume II-Chapters VII to XI; 5. Part II, Technical Description of the ENIAC. Part I of the Technical Description is intended for those who wish to have a general understanding of how the ENIAC works, without concerning themselves with the details of the circuits; it assumes no knowledge of electronics or circuit theory. Part II is intended for those who require a detailed understanding of the circuits. Its organization, to a great extent, duplicates that of Part I so as to make cross referencing between the two parts easy. The ENIAC Operating Manual contains a complete set of instructions for operating the ENIAC. It includes very little explanatory materials, and hence assumes familiarity with Part I of the Technical Description of the ENIAC. The ENIAC Maintenance Manual includes description of the various test units and procedures for testing, as well as a list of common and probable sources of trouble. It assumes a complete understanding of the circuits of the ENIAC, i.e. a knowledge of both Parts I and II of the Technical Description of the ENIAC.
