Research comments: this document gives a useful insight into how any particular manual job (in the case  of 6.2, orders from dealers for parts from a parts store and for 6.3 costing, cost accounting and production control for a light engineering company) might be broken down into tasks so that it can be handled by a computer. The documents helped managers undergoing training on LEO's Executive Course to understand how the computer can be useful. In 6.4 the reference to repetitive sequences relates to the many ways in which clerical work involves repeating the same process multiple times but with different variables. (LM)
