1980 Journal of Systems Management  
Shorter development times, simple programming languages, application packages, and simple steps into data communication were also arguments that enhanced the attraction of minis.  ...  A brief review of the pressures which led to the rapid introduction of minicomputers in industry will make the relation of DDP planning and microcom- puters more apparent.  ...

The minicomputer is connected via two DMA channel lines, and steering and control logic, to two terminals: the test terminal and the terminal being tested.  ...  Thus, JTIDS allows for multiple communities, each community being made up of multiple users all operating in a carefully choreographed ballet of time and frequency assignment.  ... 

The MINICOM data entry system

J. F. Mollenauer, E. J. Sitar, V. B. Turner
1974 Proceedings of the May 6-10, 1974, national computer conference and exposition on - AFIPS '74  
MINI-COM provides this support in the form of data communications between minicomputers and a large central system, reducing the necessity for secondary storage and expensive and hard to maintain peripherals  ...  The potential savings in data storage and program development costs have likely been outweighed by the difficulty of programming the minicomputer for data communications and by the spotty records of computing  ...

1978 Journal of Systems Management  
Probably one of the most distressing, yet subtly disguised problems confronting EDP professionals is the “old communications problem,” not the com- munications problems between machines, but the communications  ...  In large organizations, an uncoordinated prolifera- tion of “Minicomputers” can cause numerous repeats of Norton’s Stages I and II.  ... 

Cost-Effective Use of Minicomputers to Solve Structural Problems

1979 Journal of Aircraft  
The lower costs for the minicomputer are attributed to its performance characteristics, including high communication rate, in- teractive graphics, ease of use, and good response.‘ Engineering time is dominant  ...  In contrast with many data files used in conventional finite-element sytems, Fig. 1 shows how the 26 SPAR processors (programs represented by 5 selected boxes) store and retrieve information and communicate  ...
