This paper describes a method for increasing the batch-processing efficiency of medium and large scale scientific computer systems with a small main memory. A program-replacement algorithm, RESEP, is defined whose goal is to always keep the CPU busy. RESEP temporarily transfers selected programs from main memory to the secondary storage. Reallocation of such programs is also performed by this algorithm.
