    Analytical techniques applied throughout the development cycle can contribute significantly to the development of a successful ~ computer system. In this paper, we have tried to illustrate the value of doing the appropriate level of performance evaluation at each stage of a development cycle. The particular types of techniques used depend on the level of complexity and performance considerations a... View full abstract»

    The HIPO Hierarchy chart is being used as an aid during general systems design. The considerations and techniques presented here are useful for evaluating alternatives for thos portions of the system that will be programmed on a computer. The charting technique used here depicts more details about the interfaces than the HIPO Hierarchy chart. This facilitates consideration during general program d... View full abstract»

    SDLC is a data link control for serial-by-bit synchronous transmission between buffered stations on a data transmission link. A number of functional capabilities that have not heretofore been encompassed by any single data link control are provided along with improvements in many of the intanginble characteristics.

    We have described a simple model of a computing system with a storage hierarcy, based on the view that such a system can be represented by a cyclic queuing model. Each stage in the system represents a component in the storage hierarchy with the exception of one stage that represents a combination of the central processor and main storage. View full abstract»
