Abstract

Powerful, inexpensive processors, low cost storage, and high-resolution color displays make single-user, networked, multiprogrammed computer workstations suitable replacements for time-shared mainframe environment of the scientific and engineering professional. Distributed processing via networks of workstations connected to larger server machines with these connected, in turn, to national and international networks allows a completely new form of computer-aided organization for institutions. The flexibility and speed of such machines make a new revolution in information processing and human activity support inevitable. The professional workstation project has as its immediate goal a networked, distributed system of single-user workstations, each using the UNIX operating system and providing powerful object-oriented graphics tools to the user, to aid the productivity of engineers, and scientists.
