TSS/8 is an existence proof for a small-scale time-sharing system. Design, development, and performance analysis have occurred in quasiparallel. Performance analysis includes two models and two levels of simulation (using SIMULA). The final simulation, an accurate model of the real operating system, predicts the observed behavior.
