In Computational complexity theory, computing efficiency, Combinatorial optimization, Supercomputing, computational cost ( Algorithmic efficiency) and other computational metrics, MEMS is a measurement unit for the number of memory accesses used or needed by a process, function, instruction set, algorithm or data structure.

Example usage: "A typical search tree in a (10 x 10 Sudoku or Latin square) requires a node of about 75 mems (memory accesses) for processing, to check validity. Therefore the total running time on a modern processor would be roughly the time needed to perform mems." ( Donald Knuth, 2011, The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4A, p. 6).

Reducing MEMS as a speed and efficiency enhancement is not a linear benefit, as it trades off increases in ordinary operations costs.
