Title: How to design data processing input records for optimum results
Author(s): Kennedy, John P.
Subject(s): Libraries --Automation System design
Abstract: Inefficiencies in machine processing resulting from poor card design can be measured in milliseconds or microseconds per record. Even when dealing with large files, this will usually add up to no more than a few minutes per run. If the run is repeated frequently, however, a few minutes or a few dollars difference per run may be significant. For a large library processing its circulation file daily, inefficiency resulting from poor card design and requiring a few extra milliseconds for processing each record could cost the library hundreds of dollars over the course of a year.
