Data Processing T&E

Tools, equipment, and supplies originally created for processing information by manual, mechanical, or electronic means, and in a manner subject to human intervention (e.g., by physical manipulation of beads in an abacus, or by varying the parameters incorporated into computer software). Single-purpose devices, such as a digital watch or a digital thermometer, whose functions involve only the conversion of physical input (e.g., temperature, pressure, etc.) into visual, audible, or mechanical output, are not included here, but are classified according to their specific function (e.g., Timekeeping T&E or Thermal T&E).
