The manual defines System/ operating principles, central processing unit, instructions, system control panel, branching, status switching, interruption system, and input/output operations. Descriptions of specific input/output devices used with System/ appear in separate publications. Abstract. From its inception in until mid, I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to manage the IBM System/ Computer Family Project — first the hardware and then the Operating System/ Author: Frederick P.

It was the IBM ® System/, and it represented a revolution in computers, affording unprecedented power, speed and compatibility to thousands of businesses around the globe.

IBM OS/, in full International Business Machines Operating System/, an operating system introduced by IBM in to operate its family of mainframe computer systems. The system was unprecedented in its ability to support a wide array of applications, and it was one of the first operating systems to require direct-access storage devices. The IBM System/ is the longest-lived computer architecture of all time — the software written for it in is still running on some Z-series IBM mainframes today. He went on to become the chief architect of the IBM , IBM’s first commercial computer featuring floating-point hardware and indexing, and the manager of architecture for the IBM System/ family of mainframe computers. Named an IBM Fellow in , he became director of IBM’s Advanced Computing Systems (ACS) Laboratory.
