Systems Software

work in progress . . . 2019-06-18

Computer workloads encompass:

- a single program doing some user task like email or a document

- a stack of programs awaiting their turn for service, priority assigned manually

- high speed lower level programs written directly on dedicated hardware
       for maximum speed and response to instruments

- a medium speed collection of coordinated tasks connected by the operating system and network,
       operating a process, maybe attached to equipment

- a low speed high level collection of many tasks performing a daily workload,
      using the operating system plus other intermediate programs,
      such as databases, networks, lanugage packages, etc.


  EXAMPLES:   medium level control system:         Bee Team Software
