MACHINABILITY DATA CENTER CINCINNATI OH
Pagination or Media Count:
During its 8 year of operation MDC has evaluated and processed an additional 2,148 technical documents on machining data and related topics. From these documents coded evaluations have resulted in keypunching of an additional 9,491 punched cards, which are in turn recorded on organized computer files. These computer files represent an automated index to a physical file of more than 30,000 individually coded documents. These documents represent 79,268 individual records such as the type of operation, speed, feed, condition, hardness, material group, etc. The results of a computer search on any given set of input parameters of these documents would result in an output listing of document file numbers which would facilitate manual retrieval of the specific hard copy documents from the physical file previously mentioned. Approximately 247 specific inquiries of this nature were answered for 156 different organizations representing 186 individuals. Statistics are presented cost savings from MDCs services to its users.
