Automatic data processing. The term automatic data processing was applied to operations performed by means of unit record equipment, such as Herman Hollerith's application of punched card equipment for the United States Census. "Using Hollerith's punchcard equipment, the Census Office was able to complete tabulating most of the census.

Other articles where Punched card is discussed: Analytical Engine: were to be entered on punched cards, using the card-reading technology of the Jacquard loom.

Instructions were also to be entered on cards, another idea taken directly from Joseph-Marie Jacquard.

The use of instruction cards would make it a programmable device and far more flexible than any machine then in. Herman Hollerith was an American businessman, inventor, and statistician who developed an electromechanical tabulating machine for punched cards to assist in summarizing information and, later, in accounting.

His invention of the punched card tabulating machine, patented inmarks the beginning of the era of semiautomatic data processing systems, and his concept dominated that.

The first commercial data processing machines were punched card tabulating systems. Herman Hollerith () worked at the US Census Bureau during While there he began designing machines that could reduce the labor and time that would be required to process the data that would be collected in the Census.

Punched card sorters were a key part of data processing from until the s, used for accounting, inventory, payroll and many other tasks. This article looks inside sorters, showing the fascinating electromechanical and vacuum tube circuits used for data processing in the.

A punched card, punch card, IBM card, or Hollerith card is a piece of stiff paper that contained either commands for controlling automated machinery or data for data processing applications. Both commands and data were represented by the presence or absence of holes in predefined positions.

Now obsolete as a recording medium, paper tapes constructed from punched cards were widely used. The tabulating machine was an electromechanical machine designed to assist in summarizing information stored on punched ed by Herman Hollerith, the machine was developed to help process data for the U.S.

models were widely used for business applications such as accounting and inventory spawned a class of machines, known as unit record equipment, and the. A punched card or punch card is a piece of stiff paper that can be used to contain digital data represented by the presence or absence of holes in predefined positions.

Digital data can be for data processing applications or, in earlier examples, used to directly control automated machinery. Punched cards were widely used through much of the 20th century in the data processing industry, where. Hollerith initially did business under his own name, as The Hollerith Electric Tabulating System, specializing in punched card data processing equipment.

He provided tabulators and other machines under contract for the Census Office, which used them for the census. The net effect of the many changes from the census: the larger. HARVEY M. DEITEL, BARBARA DEITEL, in An Introduction to Information Processing, An Assessment.

Punched cards were the primary data entry medium through the early s when, in the United States alone, about half a million keypunch machines were in use, and most computer systems had one or more high-speed card readers.

Their use is declining rapidly now because of their many. The evolution of data processing technology and accounting over the thousands of years of their development are interrelated. For example, the need to keep records is thought to have influenced the development of writing, likewise accounting influenced many of the subsequent developments in.

Most customers I worked with had a system that consisted of a central processing unit (CPU) with 8k of memory, a card reader/punch and a printer and a tape drive or two. The punched card input could contain the program that would tell the system what to do with the data, or could be the data itself.
