As the computer field reaches maturity, users select their equipment not because of internal structure of features, but by its overall economy; i.e., performance per unit cost. Here, performance means the computer's ability to do the user's job. Cost includes not only the purchase price, but also such associated costs as space, power, operation, maintenance, software, and unreliability. 

Tables and Topics from this paper

ANALYSIS OF IMPLEMENTATION ERRORS IN DIGITAL COMPUTING SYSTEMS
TLDR
This report discusses problems encountered with control networks in highly restructurable digital systems and concludes that one technique is of sufficient generality, thoroughness, and simplicity in implementation to be used for automatic error analysis. Expand
Dynamic programming using region-limiting strategies for optimization of multidimensional nonlinear processes
TLDR
The development of an algorithm and a computational procedure for optimization of multidimensional, nonlinear, discrete and dynamic processes based on dynamic programming, which is free of the dimensionality problems usually associated with dynamic programming. Expand
Group-based parallel multi-scheduling methods for grid computing
TLDR
This book aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate. Expand

The best approach to a large computing capability
TLDR
A set of do-it-yourself instructions for designing your own multi-processor system which stresses the essential characteristics is presented, the intent being that the reader can follow through these instructions and design his own system for his own particular application. Expand
High Speed Arithmetic: The Digital Computer as a Research Tool

TLDR
A comparison of various forms of strobe and conventional addressing shows that simple strobe addressing uses the memory as efficiently as conventional addressing if the problem can and must be solved in one revolution. Expand
