Masters Theses

Abstract

"This thesis is a system study of a computer controlled grocery store. Previous work has been done in the area of computerized inventory control, and computerized checkout lines in grocery stores, but the system proposed in this thesis is to control the movement and handling of the products as orders are automatically filled. In the preliminary part of the system study, a comparison between a time shared computer service and a minicomputer is done, which results in the selection of a minicomputer for this control system. Then the general control system is presented, and the system interfacing and control for the various peripherals is configured, assuming a minicomputer with a bus structure similar to the PDP-8 machine. Finally a set of workable minicomputer specifications is developed, and a simulation of the proposed control system is done on the SCC-650 minicomputer"--Abstract, page ii.
