Abstract : ARRIED OUT TO DISSEMINATE MACHINABILITY DATA THROUGH THE DISTRIBUTION OF DATA PRODUCTS. Primary consideration was given to the Machining Data Handbook, 2nd Edition. During the fiscal year, revenue from MDC services and products reached a total of $111,585 or almost 80% cost recovery. Additionally, it is estimated that MDC services have resulted in cost savings of more than $143,000,000 since 1965. A new data product, NCECO (NC ECOnomics) Computer Program, a Fortran language computer program, was advertised for distribution. This program provides the user with an analysis for developing total and detailed costs and production rates to produce a machined component, based upon different input variables which constitute a machining situation. During its ninth year of operation, MDC processed a total of 192 technical inquiries to the Center. (Modified author abstract)
