The Model 67 with CP-67 was installed at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft to meet specific requirements of their engineering department that could not be met by a traditional batch computer system. An extensive interactive graphics system, using graphic display consoles, has been developed to assist the engineer and reduce the development cycle time of an engineering design. The interactive programming and job execution facilities provided by CMS have given the engineers and programmers simultaneous computer capabilities at local terminals through the use of virtual machines. The concepts of time-sharing and of virtual machines have certainly proved beneficial for the present applications and will definitely be a valuable tool in implementing many engineering applications in the future.
