Abstract:

The Data Center employs the IBM 1440 in the search and retrieval of its data files. The files are maintained on EAM cards but are to be converted to disk during a search. The Center formerly utilized the IBM 101 Statistical Machine and the IBM 870 Document Writing System. The Center has data relating to more than 12 million material tests of metals and plastics. Use of the computer has permitted the Center to cope with the increasing demand on its services without increasing its budget by the same order of magnitude.
