"The operation of a data processing center has been studied with the objective of investigating the effect of various facilities, job loads, and operating policies as measured by job turnaround time. The mechanism for study was digital computer simulation.
This thesis purports to review the technology of simulation and the associated computer techniques, defines the problem and the alternatives available, and analyzes the results derived from the experiments.
Conclusions drawn from this study support the current practice of a functioning data processing center"--Abstract, page ii.
