Computing Services at Chicago.
Harris, Fred H.
The increased computer capability at the University of Chicago challenges its Computation Center to generate demand by making the expanded capacity available in a broader, more effective way than has been done in the past. The new computing services must be of reasonable comparable quality to alternatives, but offered at lower marginal costs. The decision to expand services by purchasing compatable larger systems was made in 1973 by the University Board of Computing Activities and Services. It was decided that the marginal cost of wholesale acquisition of blocks of time from major centers off campus would be greater than the marginal cost of acquisition of the next larger system for the center.
