PERM or German: Programmierbare (Programmgesteuerte) Elektronische Rechenanlage München, lit. 'Munich Programmable (Program Controlled) Electronic Computing System',[1] is a stored-program-controlled electronic computer, built in Munich under the auspices of Hans Piloty and Robert Sauer 1952-1956.[2] Some jokingly called it "Pilotys erstes RechenMonster" (Piloty's first calculating monster). It weighed several tons.[3]

The machine is now displayed in the informatics (computer science) exhibition of the Deutsches Museum München.
