Abstract : TED, AND/OR DELETED BY A NUMBER OF PROCESSES AND PROCEDURES. Too often, the minimum cost of a system is not attained due to the difficulties of comparing the cost and/or technical performance of various storage devices. The Memory Evaluation Program has been designed to assist in the determination of the best or, in some cases, a feasible solution to meet storage requirements. It is a simulation program based upon mathematically-sound principles that closely parallel the procedures used by large-scale computers to perform input/output operations with storage devices. Therefore, it is possible to study more alternative solutions and to have more performance data available with which to perform comparative analyses. Algorithms for evaluating magnetic tape devices, and direct access storage devices, have been included in the simulation programs. (Modified author abstract)
