We hate 2020!

Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Computerguide 9: Production Control Date: 1973 Computerguide 9: Production Control

A survey of the use of computers for production control in the UK Manufacturing Industries.

The book, which is aimed at production and DP management, highlights the main problem areas of developing, implementing and operating computer-aided, production control systems and serves as a guide to existing and potential users of such systems. In addition it examines criteria such as reductions in stock, reductions in queueing times, to establish whether or not relationships exist between those companies who have achieved some measurable benefits in these areas and their method of approach in applying computer systems to production control.

Introducing Computer Programming Date: Unknown Introducing Computer Programming

"A machine and language-independent textbook for beginners"
From inside cover:
The use of computers for data processing has revolutionised procedures and practice in offices in commerce, industry and public service. Computers are being used for more sophisticated and complex applications every day. The basic principles of computers and of computer programming remain the same even though they are being hidden in the multiplicity of complicated machinery and the welter of jargon that results from rapid and important technical advances.
This book explains these basic principles so that those interested in data processing or wishing to take up a career in programming can understand them before attempting to learn the programming languages involved in writing programs.
