Simulation: To represent and analyze properties or behavior of a physical or
hypothetical system by the behavior of a system model.
Single In-line Memory Module (SIMM): A memory board with memory chips on
it. Memory chips can be added on the board to increase the computer's main
SLIP/PPP connection: SLIP (Serial Line Internet Protocol) and PPP (Point-toPoint Protocol) are software that allow a client computer to be connected via a
modem to a gateway computer of an Internet service provider in such a manner
that all the software tools that are on the client computer can be used by a user of
the client computer to access the Internet, rather than depending on the gateway
Small Computer System Interface (SCSI): A drive interface standard that uses a
generic device controller (called SCSI controller) on the computer system and
allows any device with an SCSI interface to be directly connected to the SCSI bus
of the SCSI controller.
Small Scale Integration (SSI): Integration of only about ten to twenty electronic
components on a single chip.
Smart card: An electronic card having a built-in microprocessor chip. Data to be
encoded on the card is permanently stored in the memory of the microprocessor
Smart terminal: A terminal having local data editing capability and the ability to
consolidate input data prior to sending them to the main computer. It has a
microprocessor and some internal storage in addition to I/O capabilities.
Snowflake schema: A data warehouse model, which consists of normalized
dimension tables, by attribute level with each smaller dimension table pointing to
an appropriate aggregated fact table. Soft-copy output: A computer output that is temporary in nature and vanishes after
use. For example, output displayed on a terminal screen or spoken out by a voice
Software: A set of computer programs, procedures, and associated documents
(flowcharts, manuals, etc...
