Abstract:

A coding scheme for machine storage and retrieval of storage study data on ration items has been evaluated and a revised version recommended. An experimental program for a magnetic tape GE-225 computer system has been designed and written. This program can retrieve storage study data from a data corpus previously stored on magnetic tape. It can, furthermore, perform simple correlations on pairs of details, such as storage time versus experimental data, stored in the data corpus. A second experimental program that acquires the storage study data directly from typed input onto magnetic tape has been written. The output of this program, which was developed for the Keydata Corporation PDP-4 on-line data processing system, has been made compatible with the GE-225. The programs were tested by operating them with a small data corpus of experimental information.
