Administrative history

The records in this series relate primarily to the functions of the Analytical Services, Computer Systems, Computer Operations branches.

The Analytical Services Branch, under Director Trevor Peach, was originally intended to provide the City with a staff of competent Work Study Technicians through a period of training and then reassignment to their departments. The concept developed to that of a permanent staff of qualified management Analysts with the capability for a broader approach to problem solving with the realization that Work Study was just one part of the problem solving approach. Their concept of service expanded to include work systems design and special assistance in office systems, forms design, organization, economic feasibility, financial studies and the provision of resource people for expediting the work of committees, and task forces.

The Computer Systems Branch, under Director George Mueske, was established to develop the various uses which could be made of a computer. It provided services that varied from providing courses in project control and critical path to actual systems design programming and implementation for specific projects. The branch had no authority to initiate new applications or to revise ones currently in use without the expressed wish of the department concerned.

The Computer Operations Branch, under Director Joe Davis, was responsible for data input, data control and twenty-four hour a day operation of the computer and auxiliary equipment.
