Workstations

There was always a strong interest in single-user workstations from the MMI, Software Engineering and IKBS communities.

The major initiative was the introduction of the SUN single user workstation in large numbers in the community, together with arrangements for central support etc. This involved Peter Kent and A B Smith. Activities included:

Sun, Whitechapel and PERQ Workstations: Martin Prime and Peter Kent 1985

The group also supported Whitechapel workstations to some degree - 22 were purchased for assessment by the IKBS Director and Tony Lucas managed the allocation and distribution of these. It also handled central purchase of Orion workstations (P Kent) and ICL Series 39 for large IKBS architecture projects (Cliff Pavelin).
