Store Program Control Concept
The term Stored Program Control Concept refers to the storage of instructions in computer memory to enable it to perform a variety of tasks in sequence or intermittently.
The idea was introduced in the late 1040s by John von Neumann who proposed that a program be electronically stored in the binary-number format in a memory device so that instructions could be modified by the computer as determined by intermediate computational results.
ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) was the first computing system designed in the early 1940s. It was based on Stored Program Concept in which machine use memory for processing data.
Stored Program Concept can be further classified in three basic ways:
