A data collection and analysis system has been developed to control magnetic tape head testing and provide data analysis for manufacturing process control. Data collection is achieved by a system of test terminals controlled by an IBM 1130 computer, which is a satellite of an IBM System/360 Model 50 computer. The data base made possible by this system provides a means of tracing recurring failures and leads to a better understanding of the effects of process variables on the completed product.
