Abstract:

It is the purpose of the paper to present in abridged form a synthesized procedure for control of production using punched-card methods. The system may be considered a framework for application to any manufacturing enterprise engaged in the fabrication and assembly of parts, regardless of product. Machines are used to record and coordinate all paperwork involved in manufacturing from time of raw material receipt through transformation into finished product. A collateral objective of this presentation is to indicate that mechanization of the production control system is a logical role for the Industrial Engineer. Author
