Abstract:

The conference was divided into three sessions covering technical development, the creation of the B 5000 and B 5500 as products, and marketing of the B 5000 and B 5500. The first and second sessions included a group of managers, engineers, and consultants. Participants in the third session included managers, sales personnel, and B 5000 customers.

Topics in the first session include: the states of the computer industry in the late 1950s; the B 5000's predecessors, particularly the ElectroData 101 and 201, B 205, and B 220; factors influencing the design to produce the B 5000; reasons for designing the machine for ALGOL rather than FORTRAN and the effect of this decision on the computer's development and sales; MCP operating system; PERM; Polish notation; descriptors; stacks; the BALGOL compiler; and other innovations of the computer. Topics in the second session include: the development of the B 5000 into a product, including the effect of the administrative organization on the project; the relations between hardware and software engineers; the interaction of project personnel and the upper-level management, field marketing, and the customers; the COBOL processor; the head protract disk system; the operating system; ALGOL; and the documentation of the computer. Topics in the third session include: the Burroughs's product line before the 200 and 5000 series computers; sales training and market reaction to the B 5000; acceptance of B 5000s at the Ohio Oil Company and Stanford University; its rejection by the University of Michigan; reasons why the B 5000 was not marketed overseas; and Burroughs' presidents Raymond Eppert and Ray MacDonald.

Participants in the first and second sessions include: Robert S. Barton, Bobby A. Creech, David M. Dahm, Benjamin A. Dent, John Hale, Erwin A. Hauck, Paul D. King, Norman L. Kreuder, William R. Lonergan, Duncan MacDonald, F. Brad MacKenzie, G. Clark Oliphint, Lloyd Turner, and Richard Waychoff. Participants in the third session include: Henri Berce, George A. Collins, James Ford, John Hale, Joseph T. Hootman, Paul D. King, F. Brad MacKenzie, and Ralph W. Pearson.
