Skilled programmer time and computer time and resources are valuable. Earlier studies had shown that added computer resources can decrease system response time and increase programmer productivity significantly. A controlled study has been made to determine whether that finding is true for the particular conditions in another program development organization. That study is reported here. Programmer productivity increased sixty-two percent with subsecond system response time. A new finding is that individual group project offices lead to greater efficiency than large open rooms.
