In this paper a scheme is proposed for automating the scaling process for analog computers in hybrid (analog-digital) systems. The analog computer's magnitude and frequency constraints are imposed by a set of equations defining amplifier input factors. The digital computer is used not only to compute and implement these inputs but also to monitor analog amplifier outputs so that present scale factors can be revised when required. An example is included to illustrate the utility and function of the automation.
