SNCF SUPPLIES DEPARTMENT SPECIAL ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING CENTRE

L'ENSEMBLE ELECTRONIQUE SPECIALISE DU SERVICE DES APPROVISIONNEMENTS

The author, Ingenieur General, Assistant to the Head of the Information Processing Department, explains the field of computer data processing in this Department and the very high number of multiple operations involved. He shows how since 1960 the Department has studied the problem by building up a file, then renting a B 3500 computer from the Burroughs Company (third generation); he then gives details of the varied tasks carried out with this computer and developments in processing methods. This is a good example of the progressive integration of processing by computer and business management incorporating most varied operations with a commercial background. New extensions are already planned.
