Resource Manager Background

The idea of UBC writing a spooling system came up in 1974, after the first MTS workshop. An expanded UBC Systems Group was looking for a project to give them coherence and direction. Updating HASP (Houston Automatic Spooling System) came up as a most worthwhile project but should the group upgrade to the new version or Ö write a spooling system from scratch!

Jeff Berryman and John Hogg brainstormed, convincing each other that a new spooling system was a reasonable and worthwhile project. Their brainstorming was presented to the 2nd MTS Workshop at Edmonton in 1975 with UBC received the communityís blessing to go ahead with the Resource Manager.

Aside from replacing HASP, other items were added to the design.

In 1976, representatives of the MTS community gathered at Ann Arbor for the 3rd MTS Workshop and UBC offered papers on all the above areasÖ and more.

more later! Perhaps by others?
