Abstract:

Two thousand eight hundred and forty 2,840 documents were processed from which 13,833 cards were key punched. Currently, there are 15,941 evaluated documents and 116,083 punched cards in AFMDC files. Nine hundred and eighty two 982 specific inquiries were answered for 439 different companies, representing 596 individuals in 105 different SIC categories. The average of 123 inquiries per month is an increase of 46 over the average of 84 per month processed in the previous year. The average cost of inquiries equaled 58.58 per inquiry. Two data products were completed and made available to the Centers users. The data acquisition plant visit program was continued and since late 1966, 46 Visitations have been made, primarily to aerospace firms. Computer programs have been developed and made operational for storage and retrieval of all the information files in use by the Center. In addition, a computer program has been made operational for investigating relationships between machining variables. Determination of existing relationships will be very valuable for evaluation of new data and filling in gaps in accrued data.
