While largely failing at that objective it managed to significantly improve Soviet computer technology. Germany was still staggering from the cost of the Great War. The second plan employed incentives as well as punishments and the targets were eased as a reward for the first plan being finished ahead of schedule in only four years. Large-scale projects in the timber and mining industries used prison labor. Officially the first five-year plan for industry was fulfilled to the extent of 93.
