Multiple Instruction Single Data (MISD) is a type of parallel computing architecture where many functional units perform different operations on the same data. Pipeline architectures belong to this type, though a purist might say that the data is different after processing by each stage in the pipeline. Not many instantiations of this architecture exist, as MIMD and SIMD are often more appropriate for common data parallel techniques. Specifically, they allow better scaling and use of computational resources than MISD does. SISD is an acronym for Single Instruction, Single Data. ... In computing, SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) is a set of operations for efficiently handling large quantities of data in parallel, as in a vector processor or array processor. ... Multiple Instruction Multiple Data (MIMD) is a type of parallel computing architecture where many functional units perform different operations on different data. ... Parallel computing is the simultaneous execution of the same task (split up and specially adapted) on multiple processors in order to obtain results faster. ... Computer architecture is the theory behind the design of a computer. ...

Perhaps the only known practical application of MISD is for fault detection through redundant computation. Devices that need to achieve extremely high levels of reliability may implement two or more separate computational processes and check the results for consistency to ensure that all components are working correctly.

The fact that MISD made a second offer after appellees rejected its initial proposal is no evidence that the first proposal was not based on an honest assessment of the property's value and was not a good faith offer.
Appellees contend MISD did not satisfy the unable-to-agree requirement as a matter of law because MISD's failure to wait for or solicit a counteroffer based on appellees' due diligence analysis was unreasonable considering appellees' continued willingness to negotiate.
MISD's superintendent testified that the school board's real estate subcommittee identified appellees' property and recommended it be acquired, and that he and another MISD executive authorized the extension of offers to appellees.
MISD Consent Order (1712 words)
MISD shall implement the two-tiered system for grades 7-8 so that it takes effect upon the first day of classes for the 2000-01 school year, and shall implement the two-tiered system for grades 9-12 so that it takes effect upon the first day of classes for the 2001-02 school year.
MISD shall replace the present cluster system with a student assignment plan whereby each MISD student shall have the opportunity to attend a single school within his or her neighborhood attendance zone for grades K through 6, beginning in the 2000-01 school year.
MISD shall notify these schools in writing by June 1 of each of the next three years, beginning June 1, 2000, of the availability of the equity account for obtaining educational or instructional resources.
