In August of 1982, a single-user, dual-translator, automated powder diffraction system was purchased by the Denver Research Institute for use on project work in the Chemical and Materials Sciences Division. Within a short period of time, the system had already become saturated with users. Scheduling conflicts arose. In view of these problems, an answer was sought in the form of hardware and software changes which would allow many users access to the system simultaneously. A low-cost, minimum impact solution was eventually found. The elements of the solution are reported.
