Abstract:

A well-considered, ordered, and thoroughly integrated procedure for control of production employing Electric Accounting Machines EAM is presented. Such machines are used in the procedure to record, coordinate, and analyze all procurement, material control, cost control, and tool control data. Much of the effort in industry to date has been oriented toward the mechanization of clerical processes with relatively little effort on the total control system. This paper is concerned with the development of a system for control of manufacturing from time of raw material receipt through the transformation into finished product.
