by T. H. Williams
This paper presents an overview of the papers in this issue of the IBM Journal of Research and Development covering the design and implementation of the ®SELECTRIC System/2000 Typewriter/Printer products. The SELECTRIC System/2000 products comprise a nonimpact typewriter and printer, two impact typewriters, and an impact printer which use printwheel technology. The development approach for the SELECTRIC System/2000 products, which included design for automation, introduction of new technologies, and product development concurrent with manufacturing, was accomplished by the use of common architecture, hardware, and software.
