Abstract : The isolation and correction of malfunctions in most electronic digital computer installations was carried out by engineers. As the number of installations grow, this task will gradually be taken over by technicians. In order to make the process of malfunction isolation efficient, it seems desirable to utilize as many training aids and as much specialized equipment as is practical. In addition, one should take advantage of all feasible schemes as alternatives in the process of isolating malfunctions. In this report various factors which influence the isolation process are considered and alternative schemes for isolating and correcting malfunctions are discussed. (Author)
