The problem of proper relative timing of the word transmissions from the two ends of a communication feedback system is examined for a number of system configurations. The transmission cycle parameter J is derived as a function of the several system delays and the feedback procedures used. It is shown that the smallest possible value of J can be computed in each situation. Furthermore, the lower bound on J can be attained in some cases by making the times of initiation of code words at the two stations coincide and in all other cases by initiating each word at one station just halfway between the initiation of successive words at the other station. In most circumstances some leeway in the required relative timing exists. Author
