Abstract:

A brief report on three projects in the RAND Numerical Analysis Department is presented. The first is a survey of the organizational setups used at various IBM Type 701 installations. The results give an insight into the philosophies influencing operation of each of eleven computing groups. The second is the development and validation of a test which will help to distinguish good prospects for computing jobs from bad ones. The last is the installation of a camera in the 701 room to expedite checking of machine programs. It is felt that the camera will allow divorcing the programmers from machine operation and that this will effect an increased efficiency in machine utilization. Author
