"An important step in the synthesis procedure for realizing a normal fundamental mode asynchronous sequential circuit is the internal state assignment. Although systematic methods have been developed to construct minimum-transition-time state assignments, they become long and tedious with hand methods for machines with more than 7 or 8 internal states. To extend the application of these algorithms to larger problems, this paper presents an efficient digital computer program for generating minimum-variable state assignments. An alternate program is also presented which, though shorter, does not guarantee a minimum-variable assignment"--Abstract, page ii.
