Cell Controller Operations Manual



Bruce Thomas


This manual is one in a series of operations manuals written to instruct a novice in the operation of one of the systems in the Automated Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) at the National Bureau of Standards. The manual assumes that the operator has some training in the use of the computer but little knowledge of the AMRF and only wants to operate the specific system in a standard configuration, not learn how or why it operates as it does. A reader interested in further information about the system should consult this document''s bibliography for a list of other publications on the subject.
