Abstract : An approach to distributed executive control in a saturation processing network is proposed using a Priority Memory (PRIME) at the switching points in the network. An analysis of the control problem is performed to derive the characteristics of the PRIME. A discussion of the relative advantages and disadvantages of this approach is given. Implementation schemes, to the detail logic design, are presented based on associative memory approach. (Author)
