SATURATION PROCESSING: AN OPTIMIZED APPROACH TO A MODULAR COMPUTING SYSTEM.

Pagination or Media Count:
Saturation processing is an optimal method for allocating resources which are maintained in a redundant fashion throughout a modular computing system. Such a computing system is very desirable where organizational flexibility and gradual degradation are of importance. However, the problem of communications and control within such systems severely limits their practicality. Saturation processing is an optimized approach to these problems, seeking to take maximum advantage of a modular computing system. The logical framework for a modular computing system utilizing only two module types is described. Discussion of communications and control are given for this system using saturation processing. These discussions are augmented with methods and examples which point out a distinct reduction of these problems. Some conclusions are derived which indicate an inverse relationship between redundance of resources and required amount of executive control. Author
