Computer Operations oversees the hands-on operation of the enterprise server's peripherals, and our large printers. Their role has changed with changing technology. For example, storage devices do not require as much attention as they once did, but they still need to be monitored. And high-volume printing is as labor-intensive as ever. The operators work in two shifts, a cumulative 18 hours a day.
Operations mans 3 printers: 2 large IBM 3800 Laser Printers and 1 Storage Technology Impact Printer. Altogether, the staff prints about 6-7 million pages per month. If you laid the paper end to end you would have 1,042 miles. That's about equal to a round trip to Myrtle Beach each month.
