The purpose of this report is to give the reader, by means of specific application examples, an overview of the extreme versatility of the minicomputer. The basic system configurations that will be described may be adapted, by analogy, to many other tasks. In this manner we hope to stimulate the reader to think about ways in which a minicomputer might be able to do a job for him at less cost, in less time, in a more thorough manner, or more reliably than that job could be done??if it could be done at all??without the minicomputer. It is beyond the intended scope of this report to discuss minicomputer architecture, to describe in detail commercially available minicomputers, or to attempt to offer detailed guidelines for the selection of a specific minicomputer model for a system.
