Abstract

"The objectives of this investigation were to illustrate the capabilities of the time-sharing (T-S) industry, identify the means by which the small sized company, with a need to solve engineering problems, can best be served through T-S, and to present T-S to these potential users. Investigation was made of distinctive T-S services to formulate a composite of the T-S industry. Examples of three distinctive T-S services were used within this composite to exemplify the variations of services within the industry. The methods a small company could use to utilize computer services were identified emphasizing T-S as the method best suited for small engineering applications. Lastly, examination was made of the considerations that require complete evaluation prior to subscribing to a T-S service. It was determined from this investigation that there are great variations in both capabilities and services offered by different T-S companies. Both the selection of the T-S company and method of utilizing the company's service depends on the needs and objectives of the user"--Abstract, page ii.
