(Scientific computation) Output from a computation that may
not be significant but at least indicates that the program is
running. Numbers may be used to placate management, grant
sponsors, etc. "Making numbers" means running a program
because output - any output, not necessarily meaningful output
- is needed as a demonstration of progress.
