This paper will be a chapter in the proposed ASCE Introductory Manual of Computer Services. In this section, the possible methods of access to various computer facilities are explained. The many phases in the computer solution to a typical problem are briefly described, and the sometimes conflicting roles of service bureaus, consultants, and in-house facilities are reviewed. Finally, some suggestions and techniques are presented for getting started in the use of computing machinery to solve engineering problems.
