This paper suggests a new method for minimizing the width or bit dimension of control store words in microprogrammed digital computers. It is shown that any given problem can be formulated within the framework of linear programming and that there exists a lower limit CLB to the number of bits. The optimal grouping of subcommands which gives this minimal width is also readily obtainable.
