The Minutes refer to the concept of the "logical package" - one of more standard packages covering a combination of gates and mixes etc. which would carry out a variety of logical functions so that the logical package could be used generally, avoiding special design and also simplifying maintenance procedures" and reducing the number of spares. This could only cover 25% of the circuits in the machine. (LM)
